Access Card Notes

"Our site is over 300 years old, and was not designed then with accessibility in mind, however we have made significant adaptations (considering the historic site) to make the site more accessible physically - including 3 (soon to be 4) lifts on site. Disabled carers/companions currently go free - so the Access Card would give some peace of mind for visitors whose disability is not visible."
