Guide for disabled visitors

The Bach CentreAccess to the Bach Centre

Mount Vernon is a 19th century Victorian cottage standing on a raised garden. Access to the front is via steep steps but there is a wheelchair ramp giving access via the side of the house. Parts of the garden are difficult for wheelchair users and for partially-sighted people because of the narrow and uneven paths.

Most visitor rooms and other facilities including the seminar room, shop and toilets are on the ground floor; one of the toilets is for users in wheelchairs. The museum however is located on the first floor up a steep flight of stairs so is not at present accessible to people in wheelchairs.

We want to do all we can to assist visitors who need help. Please contact us in advance of your visit so we can understand your needs.

Dogs

Well-behaved dogs with well-behaved owners are always welcome in the house and garden - this of course includes guide and assistance dogs. The latter are welcome in training rooms as well.

Reading material

Some Bach Centre publications are available on tape or in Braille from the RNIB. We can provide most Bach Centre leaflets and basic information in large print on request, and there is an audio CD with a standard introduction to the Bach system.

Parking

There is limited parking at the Centre. We will do our best to guarantee a parking place to visitors with mobility problems who phone ahead.
