Outstanding - Visit on Disabled Access Day
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Walking Aid
The Wellcome Collection is a free museum which specialises in health and health related sciences. This review is specifically about my visit on Disabled Access Day 2019.
Transport & Parking
The Wellcome Collection is centrally located on Euston Road. It's almost opposite Euston Station and also nearby is Euston Square, Warren Street and King's Cross stations. There are a number of buses that stop very close by. I travelled on public transport to get there and it was only a 2 minute walk from getting off the bus.
There is automated entrance doors, platform lift and lifts to all floors, to provide step free access. On this visit I attended the Global Clinic tour in one of their galleries, which offered a touch tour, speech to text and BLS interpreter. Tour was very inclusive and met the needs of disabled people with a wide variety of needs.
Accessible toilets are on each floor and they are spacious, clean and with alarm and grab rails.
Staff are always amazingly helpful and proactive. Wellcome lives up to its name and staff commitment to accessibility and inclusivity is outstanding.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
Wellcome pushed the boat out again for Disabled Access Day, and showed why their Euan’s Guide first Venue of the Year (2018) was so well deserved.
