Accessibility to Chiswick House and Gardens
Information on accessibility to Chiswick House and Gardens.
Access to the Gardens and Café
The majority of paths within the gardens are level or gently undulating and have a smooth or thin gravel surface. The steep incline on the Classic Bridge can be avoided by taking a short signed detour around the Northern end of the river. Benches are provided throughout the gardens.
Access to the House
The house is reached via a gravel courtyard. There is one step at the entrance and a ramp is available if required. All areas of the ground floor can be accessed and contain some seating. The first floor is reached via a narrow spiral staircase. If on arrival you find this staircase is difficult to manage the house staff can provide alternative access via the external portico steps. There is no disabled access to the first floor of Chiswick House.
