Disabled Access Day at St Paul’s Cathedral: You and Somewhere New

Disabled Access Day at St Paul’s Cathedral

Join us on Saturday 16 March 2019 as we take part in the National Disabled Access Day and discover more about St Paul’s Cathedral. Whilst we aim to improve accessibility every day of the year, Disabled Access Day puts disabled people at the heart of Cathedral life and showcases inclusive ways to explore St Paul’s.

When Christopher Wren was designing St Paul’s, the concept of accessibility was still centuries away. But in recent times we have worked incredibly hard to be inclusive of all people and Disabled Access Day gives us the chance to show people they should not be nervous about visiting us, whether as a sightseer or worshipper.

The National Trust at Croome, a beautiful ‘Capability’ Brown landscape, historic house and wartime museum, is striving to make Croome as accessible as possible to its visitors.

On arrival, the Visitor Centre team offer orientation to routes around the estate.   Croome’s accessibility map also shows the gradients of garden paths within the parkland and where seating is available.  

Visitors can pre-book one of the free electric outdoor mobility vehicles before heading off to discover the parkland with statues, temples, follies and lake.

Wheelchair friendly shuttle buses also run between the Visitor Centre and the house throughout the day.
