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."
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
Further details have been revealed over how many trains will be running in Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead during planned rail strikes later this month.
