locals & visitors

The Fylde Coast is an amazing part of the world to live and to visit.

Our drive during our 18- month project was to  ensure we helped as many businesses as possible to both understand and make small changes to cater well for people with disabilities and have a positive attitude towards them.

From an interactive toilet map, to outlining accessible businesses and a digital cultural app with easy read and British Sign Language interpretation.


“To educate and change peoples’ perspectives. Encourage local businesses to make the sometimes very small but necessary changes required to make life easier for anyone with a disability.” – Mike Goody, Invictus Games Gold Medallist.

“I will be coming back to Blackpool.” – Becky Dann, of C4 The Undateables.

Get The Best Experience from the fylde coast

  • Retailers, eateries, hoteliers and attractions who have taken part in Access Guides and Disability Awareness Training will be given a sticker to display in their window and a certificate – so you’ll know that they have done their best to give you the warmest welcome.
  • All businesses which have taken part will be included are included on our website and the AccessAble guide , so you can search for accessible businesses across the Fylde Coast to ensure that your planned trip suits your accessibility needs.


  • We created an interactive toilet map, which you can use on the move to find a loo or make sure you’re near one.
