An absolutely fabulous experience. From the warm welcome through to the great Access booklet, easy access to building and lovely staff!

Transport & Parking

Parking was in a dedicated accessible parking area adjacent to the main entrance.

Access

Beamish provide disabled visitors with an excellent booklet describing the access features and facilities. The majority of buildings are accessible. Sometimes the level Access is via an alternative entrance but this was clearly described and worked well.

Toilets

There are plenty of toilets located throughout the site. The accessible toilets were fine, spacious and easy to access. A larger toilet with changing bench is located in the entrance complex next to the main cafe.

Staff

Staff were fantastic. All with a warm welcome and enthusiasm to talk about the area they were in and answer questions.

Anything else you wish to tell us?

One of the few experiences were Access was so good you could forget about it! You can simply join in like everyone else and have a fabulous time!
