"A historic site such as the Tower of London has intrinsic access barriers due to the nature of a medieval castle as well as the constraints of being a heritage site."

"Historic Royal Palaces is very committed to improving access and developing inclusive policies and design. New projects will include introducing terminals in accessible areas to provide information and visual experiences relating to areas where access barriers cannot be overcome. This will allow visitors who cannot visit the areas to participate in the experience."
