Buckingham Shopmobility Service is a scheme that allows anyone with a mobility problem, whether temporary or permanent, to get out and about in Buckingham Town Centre. There are even allocated free parking spaces for Shopmobility users, next to the Shopmobility building.
There are electric mobility scooters and manual wheelchairs available. (Manual wheelchairs are available for a small fee). The wheelchairs can be folded for loading into a vehicle for home use, hospital appointments, visits to local events and places of interest. The service is sponsored by Buckingham Town Council and is free for anyone who wishes to shop or sight-see in Buckingham and the surrounding areas.
If you would like to use this service, find it on the far side of Cornwall’s Meadow Car Park, Buckingham, MK18 1RP. You can also reserve a mobility scooter or wheelchair, by contacting a member of the Shopmobility team on 07738 314 027 or email TIC@buckingham-tc.gov.uk. Currently, Shopmobility is only open on Saturdays from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm and it is closed every other day including Bank Holidays. Hopefully the full service will be able to resume once restrictions are lifted.
