Thanks to all the useful information on TA I knew that as a disabled traveller it would be difficult for me to actually go up onto the Mont. However, I wanted to see it anyway. We are staying near Arromanches, so the journey by car took us about 2 hours, but the journey is through some beautiful, green, lush countryside.
On arrival, we followed the signposts to the car park. I told one of the helpers that we wanted the disabled car park, but he directed us miles away. I decided to drive around again and saw that disabled parking was on the left, whereas we had been directed to the right.
I had taken my mobility scooter with me and the shuttle bus from the car park was accessible. There was a ramp on the bus which they lowered for me to get on and off. The bus departs about 100metres flat walk from where we had parked the car. However, where we were dropped near to the Mont would be around 700 metres to walk to get onto the Mont. I was fine as I had my scooter, but for anyone on sticks or crutches may find it a long way
I would have been able to get up to the first level where there are shops, but the ramp to get on to the walkway was extremely steep.. Even those with baby buggies were having problems with it. My partner said he would take my scooter down the ramp whilst I walked down the steps, but as it was crowded I decided not to bother.
I was surprised at the amount of building work being carried out and we may return in about five years time when it may all be finished.
On the way back to the car we got off the bus at the supermarket, which was all fully accessible and then walked back to where we had parked the car. We were quite surprised at the cost of 12 Euros for parking. often disabled parkin is free in many attractions throughout Europe.
