Tudor House Museum is a Grade II Listed building with all the steps, stairs and quirks that that entails. We have made adaptations to help you enjoy your visit where possible. If you have any suggestions as to how we can do more, please contact us.

Arrival: Friar Street is generally level and is part-pedestrianised, but the pavement outside the museum has a kerb. The nearest car park with disabled spaces is the Cathedral multi-storey pay-and-display. Spaces directly outside the museum are for 45 minutes only and cannot be reserved.

The Museum: there is a level entrance into the corridor and courtyard with a ramp to allow access into the Coffee Shop. The tavern and Victorian kitchen are level. There are chairs available in all the rooms. There is no lift to the first floor but a DVD can be viewed in the coffee shop which provides a narrated tour of the museum.

Other Measures: there are large print guides and magnifying viewers for visitors to use upon request. The lighting is usually bright but a torch is available if necessary. We welcome assistance dogs and provide water for them.

Toilet: there is a large, unisex, accessible toilet on the courtyard with vertical and horizontal handrails. The floor is made of slip-resistant tiles and the hot water is sensor-activated.

Coffee Shop: most of our products contain gluten or dairy and may have been made in a nut-handling area. If you have a particular food intolerance or allergy, please contact us in advance of your visit.

If you are on the autism spectrum or sensory and communication disorder, please contact us to arrange a ‘quiet’ visit outside of normal opening hours.
