Accessibility

  • Free on-street parking is available in Charlotte Square for Blue Badge holders.
  • Access to the Georgian House may be difficult: there are six stone stairs into the building, and then further stairs up to the first and second floors and down to the basement.
  • For visitors not wishing to climb stairs, the introductory film and an armchair guide are available on a tablet at the reception desk. There’s also a small retail area in the entrance hall.
  • A Braille guidebook, large-print information and a guided touch tour (please book in advance) are available.
  • There’s a subtitled video, as well as written information about each room.

We have an ongoing programme of accessible content development. Detailed accessibility guides for the most visited Trust places are available on our Accessibility pages as well as links to useful resources.

We’d love you to visit the Euan’s Guide website to review the accessibility of Trust places and tell us (and others) what is good and where we need to do better.
