AROUND THE SITE
The 36 acre site is mostly flat, with some slopes in places. There are nature trails around the site, but these are inaccessible to wheelchairs and possibly pushchairs, depending on their design. Most of the site has either concrete or tarmac surfaces. Around the buildings the surface varies from paving slabs to brickwork, compact gravel or wood chippings.
We suggest that, if possible, visitors using wheelchairs should use those with wider tyres as this makes for an easier and smoother visit. We do have a small selection of wheelchairs available on loan for visitors who might find this useful when visiting. Please enquire before you visit if you would like to reserve one.
Most of the exhibitions are either on ground level or have a ramp on the entrance or exit for access. However there are a few viewing platforms around the site which are accessible via steps, and the only access to the Billingshurst Signal Box is via steep steps.
We have lots of picnic benches and seating around the museum, so there are plenty of rest stops. Within the exhibition buildings, there are chairs for visitors to sit and rest.
