In line with best practice in the visitor attractions industry, visitors with disabilities are treated on an equal basis with all other visitors and entry is charged at the appropriate admission category rate - Adult/Concession/Child. Proof of disability is not required.
We recognise that some disabled visitors may need help to visit our sites and we offer free entry for accompanying carers, these can be added when making your booking. Please note this is limited to two carers per transaction.
A small car park next to the visitor centre has two accessible spaces. It is level tarmac.
There is a larger car park about 400m from the visitor centre.
Approach to site
The castle is 250m from the visitor centre, along a gently sloping grass pathway (steepest gradient 1:10) and over a timber bridge.
Assistance dogs are permitted at all our sites and within roofed areas.
Visitors' dogs are allowed at Tantallon Castle. Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times and not left unattended at any time. Owners must pick up after their dogs.
