About this Blog

Hello there! Welcome to Step-Free London, the blog dedicated to documenting the status and development of step-free access across all of London’s rail systems. Accessibility is a very important matter to me, as my partner is a wheelchair user and we travel often to London. Nevertheless, we have had our fair share of disasters and misadventures, with many issues arising from the lack of clear information available regarding accessibility. And so, the purpose of this blog is to inform readers about the ongoing development of step-free access while also being a useful resource for those wishing to travel. Being a rail enthusiast myself, it will also feature some general developments to the network and include my personal opinions and ideas.
