ShopMobility in London
It's advisable to book in advance where possible.
A number of London's shopping centres have a ShopMobility scheme nearby or in the centre of the shopping area. A scheme usually has an office with adjacent blue badge parking spaces. The offices offer manual or electric wheelchairs, as well as scooters, for hire and use. Some schemes can provide volunteer escorts if necessary. Some of these are trained to guide people with visual impairments. Some schemes provide equipment for free, otherwise services and charges vary.
