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


As expected a great place to visit to wheel around in the sunshine, enjoy the open space and enjoy all the colours of the garden.

Transport & Parking


Parking is the weakest point on a sunny day but that's demand and supply. Some parking by the John Hope Gateway although I took the bus to the East Entrance as that was much easier



A well deserved top marks as the even the glasshouse tour was wheelchair friendly with level access and powered doors all the way. A lovely walk through the rockery style garden with clearly signposted paths for wheelchair access. Time for refreshments at the John Hope Gateway where a lift or ramped walkway leads to the scrumptious afternoon tea!



Several accessible loos spotted. The one at the East Gate was fine with clear signage, level access and plenty of space to manoeuvre - really large loo at the John Hope building with enough room for carers as well.



Superb staff, more than once greeted with a cheery smile and 'hello'

Anything else you wish to tell us?

Plenty to see and the majority easily accessible to me as a powerchair user; definitely a place to visit again!
