Fun Stuff To Do

Download the Wayfindr app for smartphones. It is a guide around the London Tube system for blind and partially sighted users.

Purchase an iCan driving gift experience. Blind and partially sighted young people can get behind the wheel and drive a brand new, dual control Skoda Citigo!

Have a go at making your own hovercraft whilst testing the principles of the science behind this vehicle. Of course noting beats a trip on a real hovercraft – Hovertravel do crossings to the Isle of Wight.

 

Great Places To Visit

The London Transport Museum tells the story of the city’s transport system. As well as the All Aboard play area there’s large scale vehicle displays that you can feel and climb aboard, period room sets, costumed actors, object handling and a programme of audio described tours.

Visit historic Duxford to experience the amazing military vehicles in the Land Warfare exhibition.  Wander through themed landscapes to discover how fighting on the land has changed from the First World War through to modern conflicts, explore the working aircraft hangar and meet the engineers.

Beamish Museum is an open air, hands-on attraction with historic buildings, vehicles and themed areas including a town, pit village, colliery and farm. Many sounds, smells, tastes and textures can be experienced; and objects, surfaces and textiles handled – all making for a fabulous multi-sensory experience.
