Accessible Leicester guide available now

A new guide helping disabled people to get around the city centre has been published.

The latest edition of the free Accessible Leicester Guide 2015/16 is packed with information on city centre shops and services, their locations and accessibility, to help people with mobility problems and other disabilities to make the most of Leicester city centre.

The guide is divided into three helpful sections; useful contacts, city centre information and city centre shops, services and other facilities. It only contains useful city centre maps so visitors can find everything they need.

The free guide is available from a number of outlets across the city including the city council’s customer service centres, the Visit Leicester Information Centre and Highcross shopping centre, as well as a range of libraries and community centres across the city.

The guide will also be available online and can be found at

Leicester City Council has produced this guide in partnership with Burrows Communications Ltd.

Leicester City Mayor Peter Soulsby, said: “Our city centre has a wonderful range of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants, as well as historic buildings and museums, and it is very important that visitors with disabilities should be able to access these easily.

“Improving accessibility is at the heart of our ongoing Connecting Leicester work, and this guide reflects the progress made through that.

“This guide is a valuable resource for anyone visiting the city to make the most of what we have to offer.”
