Notes

  • The steps leading to our entrance limit access to the Centre & we ask visitors to contact us in advance of their visit to discuss access needs. It is not always possible to make all parts and vehicles as accessible as we would like and our aim is to provide as much access as possible. While visitors with disabilities pay the normal admission charge, their necessary companion is admitted free. We have designed a ramp and are exploring funding options.
