Plenty of Deer, A Few Too Many Hills
Wollaton Hall, otherwise known as the 'Batman house' (apparently it was featured in the newest Batman films) is a very impressive backdrop to the park. However, this hall does sit at the top of quite a steep hill...which, whilst it is accessible to wheelchair users, it is also quite an effort to get up. However, once you reach the top the views are beautiful and the Hall itself is stunning. Inside there is a museum with a little too much taxidermy for my liking, but it is ompletely accessible to wheelchair users. However, outside of the hall is where I prefer to stay. On a bright summers day, there is nothing more relaxing than exploring the park and sitting in the sun. Wollaton Hall is also home to a stunning collection of gardens that are extremely well maintained and filled with absolutely beautiful flowers. One of the best things about this walk is that you can't visit the park without being greeted but hoards of deer, wandering around the park and going about their daily business.
Transport & Parking
Great parking facilities, plenty of blue badge parking, but the car park does consist of small stones so they can be a bit of a pain for wheelchair users.
Once in the venue, the wheelchair access is absolutely great. Disabled toilets are available and the restaurant is also wheelchair accessible. There is also a lift in Wollaton Hall that allows anyone with difficulties walking to explore the entirety of the building. Aside from the stones in the car park, the rest of the park has pavements that are easily accessible for wheelchair users.
Spacious, well maintained and close to the restaurant.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
This is definitely one of the most enjoyable walking trails in the UK!
