Accessibility

The main building, café and museum
The building is fully wheelchair accessible. The main entrance is reached by the drive and via the West Courtyard.  The entry into the courtyard is all on one level, however there are a number of cobblestones to move over at the archway entrance.

Once inside Fulham Palace there are a small number of steps in the main corridor, though a route through the East Courtyard takes you up a ramp. Access to the Museum is via the Great Hall where there is one step into the museum corridor; alternatively access via the East Courtyard is step free.

Alternative access to the building is available from the garden terrace and café at the rear of the building off the main lawn. There is ramp access to the café. Access to the Museum from this entrance is step free.

Once in the Museum there are two steps in the museum corridor, a ramp is available at all times. Museum staff will provide assistance if required.

Jessie Mylne Education Centre
The Education Centre is step free and fully wheelchair accessible.

Gardens
The paths in the main gardens are level and have a generally solid surface with a small amount of gravel.
Access into the Walled Garden via the Tudor gate has one step. The north gate entrance is step free. The paths in the Walled Garden are level and have a thin gravel surface.  Benches are provided throughout the gardens.   The public areas of the Walled Garden vinery are step free.  Our woodland walk area may not be suitable for all as the ground is uneven in areas and bark chippings line the walkway. We would recommend it is best to have a ‘strong wheelchair pusher’ whenever possible whilst enjoying our gardens.
