Labyrinth - accessible

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.

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.

We do not have a changing places toilet, but for changing of older children and adults, please ask staff for access to the First Aid hut.

We are very sorry, but our Access Tram (suitable for wheelchair users) is not available for the 2024 season due to some mechanical issues which have become a health & safety risk. We hope to have a replacement for this in 2025.
