We aim to be fully accessible to disabled visitors. Assistance dogs are welcome.
There is disabled car-parking in the main car-park if you wish to park and enjoy our wheelchair friendly footpaths.
For visiting the gallery, there are a limited number of spaces in the courtyard for blue badge holders. You are also welcome to drop off visitors at the front door.
Access in the gallery
The main entrance is ramped and there are level floors throughout. Within the gallery there is a lift to all floors making them fully accessible to wheelchair users. Portable seating and wheelchairs can be borrowed free of charge from the Information Desk upon arrival (subject to availability).
There are fixed hearing loops in both the Ticketing Lodge and in the Shop. Visitors can make use of this facility by switching their hearing aids to the ‘T’ position. A portable induction loop is available for use in the Coffee Bar and Cafe. Please ask a member of staff if you wish to use this facility.
Accessible toilets are available on all floors.
Large print guides are available in the galleries, please ask our gallery staff if you'd like to refer to one.
An audio guide of the grounds is available free of charge. Please ask at the Ticket Lodge.
