We’re committed to making our venue accessible to everyone.

There’s free parking at the rear of the building with six dedicated Blue Badge spaces, and a further three in the front car park. Please note the front car park is for Blue Badge holders only.

We have flat access to the front and rear of the building through automatic doors, and lift access to the first floor.

In our cinemas and theatres, we provide a companion seat free of charge for wheelchair users, people with additional needs, and those who have an assistance dog.

You can find out more about access throughout our venue by listening to our audio described tour here. You can also watch our video here to help you plan your visit.
