Parking & Entrance
The car park has a designated area for Blue Badge holders who require extra space to park. Follow the signposts for disabled parking. Once parked there is a gravel path that leads to the Ticket Office. The Ticket Office/Gift Shop has a large entrance door with sloping wooden ramps to the upper Gift Shop area.
Gardens & Orangery Café
The gardens are wheelchair accessible (80%) via either flagstone, gravel or wood chipped paths.The river walks are partially accessible across grassed paths and lawns, weather permitting. There is plenty of seating in the grounds. The Orangery Café is accessed across the South Lawns and has large entrance doors, including a ramp.
Castle Tours are accessed via the Arkwright Courtyard across flagstones, then through large oak doors to either flagstone, wooden or carpeted floors. We do not have a lift to view the bedrooms but a selection of photographs are available for those unable to use the stairs.
We do have manual wheelchairs you may borrow, however your carer must be physically able to handle the wheelchair on all terrains as identified above.
The disabled toilet is located next to the Orangery Café.
Entry for carers is free of charge.
We look forward to welcoming you and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact the Ticket Office.
