Getting around the house, café, and museum

The house, café, and museum are fully wheelchair accessible. The main entrance is reached by the drive and into the Tudor courtyard. The entry into the courtyard is all on one level, however there are cobblestones at the archway entrance.

In the house there are a small number of steps in the main corridor. A route through the east courtyard takes you up a ramp.

Alternative access to the house is available from the garden terrace and café off the main lawn. There is ramp access to the café.

Access to the museum is step free through the main entrance located next to the west (Tudor) courtyard gate. Once inside there are two steps in a corridor. A ramp is always available, and staff will assist if required. Alternatively, access through the east courtyard and café is step free.

Access to the chapel is step free from the main entrance through the museum, located next to the west (Tudor) courtyard gate. There is one step in the chapel. A ramp is always available, and staff will assist if required.

Getting around the Jessie Mylne education centre

The education centre is step free and fully wheelchair accessible.

Getting around the garden

The paths in the botanic garden are level and have a generally solid surface with a small amount of gravel.

Access into the walled garden through the Tudor gate involves a short ramp. The north, south and west gate entrances are step free.

The paths in the walled garden are level and have a thin gravel surface. The main public area of the walled garden vinery is step free.

The path north of the warden garden may not be suitable for all as the ground is uneven in areas and bark chippings cover the walkway. The path south of the walled garden is gravel. We would recommend you have a ‘strong wheelchair pusher’ whenever possible while enjoying our garden.

Toilets

There are accessible, unisex toilets in the east courtyard, chapel corridor, museum and education centre. Baby changing facilities are located in the east courtyard and chapel corridor.

Access to the chapel corridor is restricted when a private function is taking place.
