Access Guide

Front cover of our Access Guide

Special arrangements are in place at many sites due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please check the individual site access pages for up-to-date information.

Most of the attractions in this guide are accessible – however the special character of individual location, site geography, monument architecture and local environment brings limitations. We are committed to developing and promoting inclusive access for all while being sensitive to our special historic environments.

The Access Guide is constantly updated to reflect the changing conditions and facilities at our sites. Consult it here before your visit to ensure you have the most up-to-date information.
