Disabled Access

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.

Disabled toilets and parking are available at our Tea Room and we also have a limited number of manual wheelchairs available for loan from our Tea Room. On occasion our disabled parking area is relocated normally due to an event taking place and if you have any queries please contact the Castle Office prior to visiting.


Covid safety measures are in place throughout the Estate and Gardens. Please adhere to national social distancing guidelines. 

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 allowed in the gardens but these should be kept on leads at all times. If you should have any queries then please contact the Castle Office on 01829 720383.
