Disabled Access Day 2016

Saturday March 12, 10-5pm
The Garden is pleased to be taking part in Disabled Access Day 2016 - a nationwide event that encourages disabled people to visit somewhere they have never been before.

Nicci Steele-Williams, Head of Visitor Services at the Garden says: “We are delighted to participate in this event. The Garden is almost entirely flat with wide paths, making most of our 40 acres accessible. Early spring is always a lovely time to visit the Garden and our daffodils, Scilla and Winter Garden in particular are looking wonderful at the moment. There are also some gorgeous scented trees and shrubs in bloom, alongside many of the paths as well as in the Scented Garden. I hope disabled visitors might see this as an ideal venue to enjoy a day out and we look forward to welcoming warmly all our new visitors on the day, as well as those already familiar with the Garden.“

The Garden has several mobility buggies available to borrow although pre-booking is advised. We also welcome guide/registered assistance dogs in the Garden.

A personal assistant accompanying a paying disabled visitor receives free admission.

We look forward very much to welcoming you on the day, and strongly welcome also your thoughts and feedback about our Garden and its facilities.

More about Disabled Access Day 2016:
Disabled Access Day aims to encourage disabled people to visit a venue that they have never been to before. It could simply be a trip to a local coffee shop or restaurant, or to places further afield like famous British tourist attractions. In so doing, they will highlight those venues that have good accessibility, increase the numbers of conversations between venues and disabled people and raise the profile of disabled access.
