Disabled Access

IMPORTANT – March 2024- our ramp access is currently being upgraded from Crag Brow so this route is unavailable. The work on the ramp has been delayed due to poor weather so currently access is only via Rayrigg Road.

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.


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


Our policy is to offer a discount to carers in receipt of Carers Allowance. Please bring documentation as proof. Without this documentation, we are unable to offer a discount.  If you have any queries, please call us ahead of your visit on 015394 88444.
