Calling Time - Evidence
Tanvi Vyas, London
"I've often been told that there is disabled access to restaurants and bars but when I've arrived there is only a separate, often back door, entrance and no space to move in once I am inside. Entry alone does not make a venue accessible."
"I've been to many restaurants where people are willing to help, offer alternatives,are polite and anticipate future needs. Pizza Express, Las Iguanas and Dim T are just three."

"When I went to an art gallery for upcoming artists I found most of the exhibition was on a lower floor and that there were no disabled accessThe stairs were wide but had gaps in between and one side wasn't even attached to a wall. I found it extremely difficult to get up and down. Luckily, with the support of friends, I was able to.'"
