This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Wheelchair, Powerchair


The front of the hall is down a massive flight of steps, & unfortunately the map showing wheelchair access is down a couple of steps. Wheelchair access requires going back along the road, turning left & going downhill, then turning left again. There is an ally that leads to the hall which is easily missed. The gardens surrounding the building are paved with stone which is slightly uneven, but still easy to move around on in the wheelchair. There is a ramp opposite the ally, and a button to open the automated original medieval doors. Once inside, the rooms are spacious & connected by shallow ramps. Every part of the building is accessible, including the upper floor via a sturdy platform lift. The lift is operated by a joystick, which is much easier than holding down a button. The building was built in 1357 & is listed; it's proof that listed is not an excuse for inaccessibility! Staff were friendly & helpful. Other than the oversight of putting the wheelchair map down a couple of steps, I couldn't fault the access. Well worth a visit.
