Special Note to Wheelchair Users
The garden is accessible to all as we have removed many steps and provideda hard surface loop around most of the garden. I hope you appreciate our efforts.
However please try and keep to the paths, particularly in damp conditions.
The Vineyard door is not accessible; please go around either way.
The Memorial Gates are not accessible. Please use the diversion route to the right (north).
The steps at the north end of Millennium Garden are not passable. Please go round the drive and under the Clock Tower.
Please consider not going down into the valley unless you have the means of getting out; stay on the high ground.
There is a fully compliant Disabled WC in the Stable Yard.
The Bluebell Wood is accessible but please do not venture in the furthest sections, from where the path divides, as there are many steps.
We reserve the right to deny access to Transit Chairs (those with 4 small equal wheels) intended for use in institutional environments. These are not suitable for garden use. Consider transferring to one of our wheel chairs, available for free hire. Access Statement
