Family with disabled member

We have taken advise from disabled guests over the last 20 years on the best venues to visit in the area, and tips on how to enjoy the area. We recognise that disabilities vary greatly and challenges faced by our disabled guests are very individual so this page tries to offer ideas for people with wheelchair users in their groups. 

We also have a page which provides first hand experience by our guests at several venues throughout the area - please visit it here.


SundayThe Pegasus Bridge Museum is a great venue for any family but includes a lift for wheelchair users. There is a beautiful walk by the side of the river which has distances painted on the smooth tarmac path so you can see how far you've gone ( and how far you are away from the car )

MondayThe Memorial de Caen is a museum dedicated to peace. It is both moving and interesting and well worth at least one full day visit, and it is fully accessible.

TuesdayBayeux has both the tapestry and a war museum as well as a British Cemetery which are all accessible venues.

WednesdayThe racing at Deauville is totally accessible and people in wheelchairs benefit from a special area for the best view of the races.

ThursdayFor the gastronomic delights of Normandy, Isigny-sur-Mer has a Caramel factory you can visit and take a tasting or two. Cider is produced in Formigny at Ferme-du-Lavoire and at Nonant there is a Museum of Chocolate.

FridayCaen city centre offers lot of shops, cafes and bars as well as some wonderful architecture.  The churches and castle are just some of the great buildings in the centre of the city. 
The afternoon can be spent relaxing by the pool before getting ready for the trip home.
