Windsor Castle will offer free admission to visitors with disabilities on Saturday as part of Disabled Access Day.
The castle in Windsor, the Palace of Holyroodhouse and The Queen's Gallery, both in Edinburgh, will give talks and tours for blind and partially-sighted guests, as well as visitors who are deaf and hard of hearing.
Standard access resources, including plain English tour scripts, induction loops, large print and lift access will also be available.
Amy Stocker, access and inclusion manager for Royal Collection Trust, said: "We are delighted to be taking part in Disabled Access Day for the second year running and showing how accessible the royal residences are.
"The day is a fantastic opportunity for visitors with disabilities, who might be a little unsure about visiting to come and try something new."
