Accessibility

Access information

Unfortunately due to the natural contours of the land, access to the gardens is limited for those with physical disabilities and parts of the gardens are unsuitable for mobility scooters, wheelchair users and prams. The gardens are steep in many places, rising to 70m above sea level. There are a number of steep drops, slippery stones, spiky plants and areas with deep water located in the gardens.

The gardens can become muddy in wet weather, therefore suitable footwear is recommended at all times.

Visiting the Sculpture Gardens

When you buy your garden entry ticket you will be offered a map that will help give you an idea of the size and scale of the gardens. If you have concerns about access, please mention it to whoever is on the ticket desk, they will be able to advise you and suggest appropriate paths and routes through the gardens.

Carers are entitled to free garden entry when visiting with a registered disabled person. Assistance dogs (as well as all other dogs) are welcome in the gardens at all times.
