We understand the importance of access for all, so we have taken measures to ensure all of our visitors enjoy a great day with us whatever their ability.

There are access ramps or lifts to all our visitor facilities.

If you are a wheelchair user, our Access Tram (Berlin 3006) has an appropriate platform for you to enjoy a tram ride with your wheelchair.  It will operate at on most days (subject to availability of tram crew) if requested at least one week in advance. This could exclude special events. Please email: to request this.  We regret that the Access Tram is not available on 14th and 15th August 2021.

Please state your time of arrival and numbers in the party and you will be allocated a time slot for your tram ride (It is recommended that you arrive at Town End 10 minutes before). Please note the Access Tram is not suitable for mobility scooters and is subject to a weight limit of 300kg.

Running times for the Access Tram are:  11:15 – 11:45 – 14:15  but please check availability in advance.

A “smoothway” provides a smoother alternative to the cobbles for wheelchairs and buggies.

Wheelchairs are available for hire from 10am until 4pm for a £10 deposit which is refunded when the wheelchair is returned. If you would like to book a wheelchair in advance, please contact us the day before you visit to check availability.

There are disabled toilets located at the Red Lion Pub, Assembly Rooms and at the Wakebridge Tram Stop.

All building have lifts and ramps to enable access.
