Visitors with mobility impairment
Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse is a large site. All buildings and displays have level access except for the school room which has a ramp.
There is a ramped entrance to the cafe and its courtyard garden. There is a gravel courtyard and paths around some of the workhouse buildings.
There are chairs in the museum buildings and benches throughout the grounds. Outdoors you will also find ‘Resting Places’ to lean on for a break, but visitors who find walking tiring should consider bringing a portable chair, stick or walking frame with them.
There is a rough, sloped track to the farm. If you would like some assistance in visiting the farm, please speak to a member of staff as they may be able to arrange for you to drive down to and park on the farm. On busy days this may not be possible.
There is a lift in the workhouse building in the ‘Staff’ gallery on the ground floor. If you need help to use the lift, please talk to a member of staff.
Gressenhall has six manual wheelchairs and an all-terrain mobility scooter called a ‘Tramper’ available to borrow. These are available for visitors free of charge, but we recommend you book them in advance by calling the museum shop on 01362 869269. Alternatively, please contact our bookings administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01362 869251.
The museum courtyard and cafe courtyard garden have wheelchair-friendly benches.
There are accessible/ambulant toilets in the welcome area, cafe, workhouse building and on the farm.
Assistance dogs are welcome. Please ask at the shop or cafe for a bowl of water.
