UK venues are improving accessibility using what3words
Street addresses and postcodes can be inaccurate. Often, a single address exists for a large area with the pin dropping in the middle of the building. This makes specific entrances difficult to find, which is especially frustrating for people trying to find an accessible entrance.
Venues are solving this challenge with what3words. Every 3m square has been given a unique combination of three words: a what3words address. Now anyone can find, share and navigate to precise locations using three simple words.
To make every visitors’ experience as smooth as possible, more and more UK venues are using what3words to describe the exact location of their accessible entrances. For example, the accessible entrance for Church House, Westminster, can be found at ///note.posts.rotate
Here are some more great examples of venues using what3words to improve accessibility:
Church House Westminster
Birmingham City Church
IET London: Savoy Place
IET Birmingham: Austin Court
Holiday Inn London, Heathrow Bath Road
Cavendish Conference Centre
