Disability access: We welcome all visitors, however, as an ancient scheduled monument we are restricted to the adjustments that can be made. Access to the lower levels is currently unavailable for wheelchair users and those with limited mobility due to steep steps and uneven floors. Access to the terreplein is via a grassed slope- this may not be suitable for some wheelchairs. Ramps will be in place to help navigate over smaller changes in ground level.

Free parking available on site.
