We recognise that a historic site can present access difficulties. Sudeley Castle staff are always happy to help our visitors – please do not hesitate to ask.

Wheelchair Users

Please view our full Access Statement.

Due to recent works some paths have deep gravel in sections and may be unsuitable for wheelchairs/mobility scooters. We apologise and are working on fixing this problem. Where possible you are welcome to use the grass verge instead, and we have 2 x off-road manual wheelchairs which can be used. The wheelchairs can be reserved by contacting our Visitor Centre team on 01242 604244 or enquiries@sudeley.org.uk

Please note that the castle rooms and exhibition areas are unsuitable for wheelchair users or those with mobility difficulties whilst restrictions are in place.

Parking

We have a large, free visitor car park next to the Visitor Centre and designated disabled car parking spaces available closer to the castle. Please head to the Visitor Centre on arrival and directions will be given.

Two manual wheelchairs are available for hire at the Visitor Centre, please phone 01242 604244 to pre-book.

Gardens

A circular route around the gardens is wheelchair accessible although some visitors may require assistance from their companion.
