We all know that one of the biggest challenges faced by families with disabled children is inadequate toilet or changing facilities

So we’ve compiled a list of another 10 UK Tourist Attractions that have a Changing Places toilet. 

At least that’s one less thing for you to worry about when you are planning your days out this summer.

1. Kew Gardens

There is lots to see at Kew Gardens and even their tree top walkway is wheelchair accessible. 

You can find their changing places toilet by the Brentford gate car park entrance.

2. Alton Towers is one of the UKs best loved theme parks and now not only do they have a full sized Changing Places toilet, they also have a slightly smaller Space to Change facility! 

The changing places toilet is located at Xsector and the ‘Space to Change’ is in Fountain Square, both are situated by the main toilet block and are identified on the park map with the changing places logo. 

You will need a radar key but you can borrow one from the box office if you forget yours.

3. Tillgate park has so much to offer from miles of woodland and bridleways for long leisurely walks to the Tillgate Nature Centre and Go Ape. 

Tillgate has a Space to Change toilet which you can find within the Nature Centre and are able to use even if you are not visiting the centre itself.

4. At Longdown activity farm near Southampton you can bottle-feed the kid goats and the calves, feed the ducks, meet the pigs, donkeys, and alpacas.

You can have a cuddle with a baby rabbit, hold a chick - you may even get the opportunity to stroke a piglet! 

Their changing places toilet was installed after a successful campaign by one of our blog contributors, Sarah Brisdion.

5. If you are visiting London, the chances are you will end up on the South Bank, in close proximity to many of London’s major attractions including the London Eye and the SeaLife Centre.

The closest Changing Places toilet is on level 0 at the Tate Modern and is available to anyone who needs it until 10am-6pm Sunday – Thursday and 10am-8pm Friday & Saturday

6. Blair Drummond Safari Park has everything from lemurs and zebras to lions and elephants and you can find the changing places toilet located on Ground Level at the main attraction area.

The Toilet is unlocked by a code, which is available on arrival at the admission office.

7. Sandcastle waterpark is the UK’s largest indoor waterpark and not only has a changing places toilet but also offers Silent start Saturdays with no music for the first hour of operation every Saturday and accessibility evenings throughout the year. 

The waterpark has won accessibility awards for the last 4 years and even has its own Facebook page dedicated to accessibility!

8. Colchester Zoo is one of Europe's finest zoos with over 260 rare species. A registered Changing Places toilet is available in the toilet facilities near the meerkat enclosure. 

You will need a radar key although staff at the meerkat hangout can assist you if you don’t have one.

9. Music festivals. – We may have to wait until 2019 for Glastonbury’s return but most of the big UK music festivals now have mobile changing places toilets including V Festival and BST Hyde Park and some of the smaller ones do too. 

If you are planning to visit a festival which doesn’t provide a changing places facility you could always suggest they hire a Mobiloo.

10. At Merseyside maritime museum you can uncover objects from the Titanic, find out about life at sea and learn about the port of Liverpool. 

The Changing Places toilet is available on the second floor of the museum, adjacent to the 'Titanic and Liverpool: the untold story' gallery.
