Disability Access Information

The hill at Foxton is the only difficulty for access. Most of the footpaths are graded to make it easier for wheelchair users,and you can get to all of the important parts of the site. You may however need a bit of extra muscle as it is still a 75 foot climb up the hill. The museum itself is completely level. There are blue badge parking places in both car parks and one additional space closer to the museum. if you have any doubts, we recommend that you ring the museum on 0116 2792657 for advice.
