Accessible Beach Huts
*Please note, the seafront team are not operating beach wheelchairs at present, the offices are not open to the public for now.* Bookings for beach huts are paused due to a national lockdown from 4th January 2021.
Introducing the UK’s first purpose designed fully disabled accessible beach huts – available for hire at Bournemouth’s multi-award winning Boscombe seafront. The huts incorporate high quality design, visual flair and unique function. The inside of each hut is a highly adaptable and flexible space capable of accommodating up to four wheelchair users at once.
Each hut comes equipped with four directors chairs, a table, split level work surface, gas stove, lockable cupboards and shared fresh drinking water tap. A connecting partition wall can be removed, opening out a pair of huts into one unit for large group hire.
The huts were designed in consultation with disabled beach users and Bournemouth Borough Council by designer Peter Francis-Lewis and a:b:i:r architects. Seagull and Windbreak form part of a hub of improved accessible facilities at Boscombe.
Other features include: Fully accessible public toilet, featuring internal shower unit. Electric mobility scooter charging point and improved accessible parking bays, ‘Changing Places’ facility incorporating change bed, toilet, sink, shower and ceiling mounted tracking hoist (access key from nearby Boscombe Beach Office) and a Beach access wheelchair (from Boscombe Beach Office). Please note, the wheelchair is available on a first come first served basis – no wheelchair bookings can be made in advance.
