Visit Southampton

Visitors with Disabilities

Southampton is keen to encourage visitors with disabilities to move around and enjoy the city independently, unhindered by accessibility issues.

•    Parking - Visitors displaying valid disabled persons’ Blue Badges can park free of charge in all Southampton City Council surface car parks, as well as in West Park Multi-Storey and on-street parking bays.
Please see the city's interactive parking map for information on these car parks.

There are designated parking areas for people with disabilities at WestQuay Podium, WestQuay Multi-Storey, and West Quay Retail Park.

•    Shopmobility has two Shopmobility schemes which can provide battery operated wheelchairs/scooters, or manual wheelchairs to anyone with limited mobility. City Shopmobility is located at a surface car park near the Above Bar Street pedestrian precinct and WestQuay Shopmobility is located on level 2 of the Podium Car Park.

Please note Tourism for All UK is the UK Voice for Accessible Tourism. They are a national charity dedicated to making tourism welcoming to all.
