Some areas of the gardens are unsuitable for wheelchairs, scooters and other mobility aids we have provided a signed wheelchair route through the Temple Garden for example.

Accessible toilets and parking are available at the Cafe where we also have a limited number of manual wheelchairs available for loan. On occasion our accessible parking area is relocated normally due to an event taking place and if you have any queries please contact the Estate Office prior to visiting.


Caution should be taken around the grounds owing to differential and irregular ground levels, including shallow but sheer drops, tree roots, rabbit warrens etc, with sensible footwear being required at all times and pathways may become slippery with some areas being restricted for wheelchair access. If assistance is required please ask a member of staff. Avoid parking or resting below trees. There are water hazards within the grounds and vehicles sharing routes and moving around the site and children/vulnerable persons should be supervised at all times. In the event of an accident or incident please report this immediately to a member of staff.


Dogs are welcome in the gardens but should be kept on leads at all times.
