Disabled Access


Disabled badge holders may take their vehicles to a designated disabled parking area inside the Swannery.

Buying Tickets / Entering the Swannery

Those who are able to provide documentary identification of disability (i.e. blue / orange badge or similar) will be able to take a carer in free of charge.

On arrival follow the disabled parking signs and pull into the holding lay by near the shop / admission point. Ensuring that traffic can still enter and exit via the road, purchase your tickets in the shop. Staff will then open the entrance gate and direct you to the designated disabled car park inside the Swannery avoiding a long walk. All other visitors must use the entrance car parks.


Wheelchairs and scooters are not available for hire.


Toilets are located for visitors with disabilities at the entrance and inside the Swannery near the bouncing bomb exhibit.


One companion is admitted free of charge per wheelchair user or visually impaired visitor.

Assistance Dogs / Pets

Unfortunately dogs/pets are not allowed into the Swannery as the Swans would become excited and aggressive.

Access to the Swannery

The paths at the Swannery are flat and access to all areas in a wheelchair is possible except to the telescope platform.
