Access Information

As with many historic buildings, it is difficult to access some areas. It is recommended that at least one able bodied person is available to assist. The grounds of the castle are uneven, but there is a ramp leading up to the museum, it is however quite steep. Once at the front door it is possible to access the Keep gallery where our changing exhibitions are held. Museum staff can assist with opening doors. Other areas of the museum are accessible to varying degrees via outer doors. A museum custodian will need to help so please be patient if the museum is busy. Guide dogs are very welcome. We are working towards providing alternative means of seeing the collections for those visitors who are unable to get to them physically. Please contact us if you would like to discuss access further.
