New UK Trip Glitch - Wheelchair/Crutches

Jump to last reply

Five weeks before our European rail journey, I tripped and fractured my kneecap, had surgery and will be using crutches & collapsible wheelchair for trip in 3 weeks starting 3 nights London, 2 nights York and 2 nights Edinburgh. Such disappointment (!) but cancelling or postponing our trip is not an option so we will scale back our expectations. We have visited London briefly before. Called British Airways about seat need and assistance. Will reserve car service (Janis' previous suggestion perhaps) to pick us up at Heathrow and bring to Lime Tree B&B in West End near Sloan & Victoria stops. Hoping encouraging Fodorites can make suggestions on up-to-date accessibility links or suggested routes. I assume cabs best; preferred bus/metro stops for accessibility appreciated. Hoping to visit National Gallery/Portrait, V&A, Westminster Abbey, sit on On/Off Sightseeing Bus. Perhaps Hampton Court visit is a reach now. In York, staying a B&B near Minster. In Edinburgh, Jurys Inn and hoping to just get an intro to Royal Mile/Castle. Purchased train tickets Kings Cross London to York on East Anglia; tickets from York to Edinburgh on East Coast Rail months ago, have not yet inquired about accessibility. All suggestions most welcome.
