Information for Visitors with Access Needs

Gainsborough’s House is entered via the shop entrance at ground level. The exhibition gallery on the ground floor has one step, for which a temporary ramp is available.The house has three floors. The second floor is accessible via a platform lift. The upper floor is only accessible via a flight of seven curved stairs. There is an accessible toilet next to the shop. The garden is partly accessible with a ramp to the higher level. There are some uneven paths and grass surfaces. Although we do not have a car park, a parking space close to the house can usually be made available for visitors with access needs upon prior arrangement. The nearest Blue Badge parking spaces are off street bays on Gainsborough Street adjacent to Gainsborough’s House. These are limited to one hour waiting.

*Please be aware that our lift to the second floor is temporarily out of order (12/09/19). We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
