Please note: Our Platform lift in the house is currently awaiting repair – we apologise for any inconvenience caused (14/7/21)
We want everyone to be able to enjoy the site as much as is possible and have put together some information so that all our visitors know what to expect when here.
House and Garden
As we are over 100 years old, we do have some features which make getting around more challenging for visitors with mobility issues but have done what we can to make the site as accessible as possible.
The first floor of the house can be reached via a platform lift. . Some of the rooms feature quite narrow doors so any visitors with larger sized wheelchairs should check our detailed access statement (below) for further information.
Many of the garden paths are wheelchair friendly but there are uneven areas across the whole site and care must be taken. Paths run throughout most of the garden but full access to all areas is unfortunately not possible for wheelchair users.
Due to size and space issues, visitors with mobility issues may find it difficult to navigate our tea room seating area. During the summer, more space can be found on our tea room terrace.
The easy access toilet is situated near the front door. We usually have two mobility scooters and one manual wheelchair available for use by the public. These are available on a first come, first served basis and cannot be reserved. There is no charge for their use.
Full details and more information can be found by downloading our access statement.
As we are part of the University of Birmingham, we encourage any website viewer that is experiencing difficulty with navigating the site to refer to our website accessibility statement.
