Disabled Access

The Attraction

The Attraction is situated in the centre of the hilly town of Bowness-on-Windermere. Working within the confines of our converted Old Laundry building we have made our facilities as accessible as possible.

The building has two entrances:

  • Main entrance- from Crag Brow via a steeply sloping ramp with handrail
  • Alternative entrance – from Rayrigg Road via steps (not suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs).

Families with wheelchairs or pushchairs coming from Rayrigg Road car park can avoid the steps by taking the second entrance to the building – a passageway to the left straight after the steps up to the Attraction.  Please note this route is steep. Once inside the Attraction, all areas of the building (aside from a small section of the garden) are fully accessible to visitors. A lift gives access to the toilets and the Café.

Parking

We have no Disabled Parking on our site. The nearest parking for Blue Badge holders is Rayrigg Road Car Park where charges apply.

Carers

If an adult disabled visitor requires another person, as their companion or carer to enable them to access the Attraction, then this person is admitted free of charge.  Please bring documentation.  All other adults and children need to pay full admission or show their annual pass. If you have any queries, please call us ahead of your visit on 015394 88444.
