Facilities & access

We have created a detailed Accessibility Guide for Georgian House to assist with your visit.

Please note that there is no level access to the Georgian House, and inside there are stone stairs across the four levels. There are two rooms on the ground floor, and an introductory film and armchair guide are available on a tablet at the reception desk. There’s also a small retail area in the entrance hall.

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