Accessibility

Bodelwyddan Castle Trust is committed to providing access to all sections of the community to its amenities, benefits and educational facilities

Wheelchair friendly walks

Bodelwyddan Castle offers wheelchair access to ground and first floors via a lift. We provide a 'drop-off point' outside the main door. 

Parking

  • Disabled drop-off point at the main entrance and dedicated spaces on the main car park, signposted clearly in the car park.

Accessing the Site

  • There are two wheelchair access routes into the Castle. A CCTV monitor at the Main Entrance enables attendants to identify unaccompanied individuals who may need guidance to these points.

Inside the Venue

  • All ground floor and first floor galleries are suitable for wheelchair users with lift access to permanent and temporary displays.
  • Regrettably, permanent displays on the mezzanine and second floor are not wheelchair accessible. Handling resources are being developed to allow visitors to experience aspects of these displays.
  • Due to the nature of the collections in our care, we are unable to permit the use of large, outdoor mobility scooters in the castle itself. However, free wheelchair hire is available for those with mobility difficulties.

Interpretation

  • Attendant staff are on hand to provide free guided tours to tailored meet the needs of individuals.
  • The Educational Team can provide facilitated tours incorporating handling collections to pre-booked groups with access needs.

Facilities

  • There are ground floor toilet facilities for disabled users at the box office and also within Caffi Celf.
  • The Castle Gift Shop and Caffi Celf both have direct wheelchair access.

Did you know?

Y Gwr Hir, or The Long Man, is a limestone figure set into the north wall of the Castle. During new building works to this part of the house in 1829 human bones were discovered and, as far as we know, the bones remain where they were buried here.
