Disabled Access Day
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Wheelchair
This Museum is a Grade 1 listed Georgian house, which is largely unaltered and so disability accommodations are difficult. Also, the house is in an old part of Bath and outside are flagstone pavements on a hill, which can be challenging! The primary guide takes the role of the main housekeeper and talks you through the daily routines and staff present in the house in C18th.
Transport & Parking
Disabled parking is available in Charlotte street public car park, but this is a 5-10 minute wheel/walk to the house & is uphill ! Timing given is approximate and depends on your speed/stamina.
2 floors of this 4 floor house is wheelchair accessible - 2 person lift (wheelchair + carer) / kitchen & sleeping quarters are not, but during my visit a secondary guide talked about Georgian life, answered my questions and let me handle artefacts, while the rest of the tour party visited these areas. Note: Georgian doorways are wide, so no problem for wheelchairs. The tour is very interesting and well worth a visit if you & your wheelchair pusher/motor are up to it.
I saw or saw signs to an accessible toilet but didn’t use it.
All the staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. The role-play element of the main tour was particularly engaging.
