Disability and access

We endeavour to make as much of the attraction accessible to all visitors. Partial wheelchair access is available around the gardens, however during periods of sustained wet weather the gardens are closed to wheelchair users. To avoid any disappointment please contact us in advance for further advice.

Accompanying carers are admitted FREE with proof of entitlement. Proof in form of a Carers Allowance entitlement letter from DWP, a Dorset County Council ID Card (i.e. employee of a care/residential home) or a CRISP Carers Card.

For further information on accessibility please read our Access Statement.


Sorry no dogs allowed except Registered Assistance Dogs.

Registered Assistance Dogs must wear their Identifying Jackets and their Environmental Health and Identification Cards must be shown.
