Unfortunately, no. We only allow Assistance Dogs in the Gardens.

They bloom on both Lakes from mid-June to the end of August.

Our toilets are situated at the rear of the café. We have a disabled toilet with a changing bed for those with special needs, and baby change area.

To keep them healthy, our fish are fed a special low-protein fish food which can be purchased from the Visitor Centre for £1.30 a bag.

We hold an Age UK award for our facilities for disabled people.

The Gardens, Lilypad Café, Museum and Gift Shop are all wheelchair and pushchair friendly, and we have disabled toilet facilities with a changing bed for those with special needs, and a baby changing area.

There are two viewing platforms in the Gardens which allow wheelchairs and pushchairs to be positioned right up to the edge of each of the Lakes.

With the exception of the rockery, all areas are wheelchair accessible with suitable paths around the Gardens.

Assistance dogs are welcome in the Gardens, and disabled parking is available immediately next to our Visitor Centre.

We have a small number of push along wheelchairs available which can be loaned from our Visitor Centre and we advise ringing us on 01759 307125 a few days before your visit if you’d like to reserve one
