For the wheelchair user

The accessible parking bays are located closest to the attractions and near to the area for coach parking. On arrival in Holkham Park, you will be directed by our car parking attendants to this designated area. From the accessible parking area there is a hardcore roadway leading to the main courtyard and ticket office.

Visiting the Hall

Visitors with particular access requirements to the hall can be dropped off outside on the gravel driveway. The driver will be asked to re-park in the nearest accessible car parking bay. The main entrance can be accessed by an all-weather metal ramp. Once inside visitors are able to gain access to the first floor State Rooms by using an innovative new stair lift. Assisted by hall staff, the ‘Jolly Stairclimber’ can take most types of manual wheelchair up the staircase in the Marble Hall. The equipment, which works like a mini-tank, climbs up the stairs using a self-propelled mechanism and rubber tracks. Once you have visited the state rooms, you will be brought back down to the Marble Hall using the same process. Elsewhere in the hall there is full access. Please be aware that there is a weight limit of 20 stones/137 kilograms (person and wheelchair) when using this apparatus.

We apologise, but the stairclimber is not suitable for electric wheelchairs. Where this is a problem, we are happy for visitors to transfer into one of our two wheelchairs, if this is possible, to be taken up the staircase and continue their visit.

An accessible lavatory is available in the courtyard lavatory complex. The terrain is variable - from gravel outside the hall, to parkland and hardcore paths and roadways as well a cobbled courtyard surface.

Walled Garden

Accessible parking is available at the walled garden. The terrain is accessible but is uneven in places. There are lavatories (portable-style) at the walled garden.
