Fantastic access both inside and out.

Transport & Parking

We were staying at The Swan Hotel just opposite the Cathedral, so it was just a quick wheel away.


The outside paths were solid and suitable for wheelchairs (I self-propel and needed no assistance). Similarly, I could manage the footbridges with no support. Inside the palace there was a lift to the upper floors and everything else was step free. There was an accessible loo with grap rails.


It was easy to find, large enough with grab rails galore.


We asked about access and were given accurate and helpful information. I got in as a concession (£6.90) and my husband was free as an essential cater (not that I needed any assistance, but we were charged this amount without asking).

Anything else you wish to tell us?

Highly recommended. I don't have many opportunities to get out and about in such a tranquil and beautiful place as well having access to the beautiful gardens and historic buildings.


Beautiful grounds Accessible grounds. Ramps outside and lifts inside.
