Wheelchair Access

Wheelchairs and mobility scooters are available from the Welcome Building. Please book wheelchairs and mobility scooters in advance by calling Visitor Services on 0300 067 4861.

Mobility scooters are available for free loan in two time slots: from 10am to 1pm and from 1.15pm to 4pm.

Please note that bookings for mobility scooters can be made a maximum of four weeks in advance, and bookings are limited to four scooters per group. All hard paths are accessible for wheelchairs and scooters and buggies. Trails off the paths are accessible depending on weather conditions but can be unsuitable in wet conditions due to mud. Please note that due to the terrain we do not advise the use of three wheel electric scooters.

Short Distances

Short distance
Our shuttle service runs on Tuesdays, Thursdays and weekends, to help less mobile visitors get from the Welcome Building to the restaurant and main facilities.

And we've now added a series of short walk routes from the shuttle stops to some of the most beautiful parts of the arboretum, for those only looking for a short walk. Pick up your short walk map on the shuttle. Disabled parking spaces are located close to the Welcome Building.
