Visitors with Mobility Impairments
Heartlands is fairly flat, but there are a few gentle slopes, though nothing steep. You can get to any part of the site by pathway.
The disabled parking is by the Red River Café, next to the wooden building (toilet block). Disabled parking is free and on a first come first served basis.
We’ve made access within the main complex as easy as possible:
Our Grade II* listed Robinson’s Engine House has restrictions on inserting a lift, there is no access inside for those with mobility issues or wheelchair users. This is the one area in 19 acres where history beat us. Sorry. Our Museum and all other facilities are fully accessible.
Visitors with Hearing or Visual Impairment
Assistance dogs on a lead are welcome. We also run a hearing loop system within areas of the site. Please ask about this in our café, museum or reception when you arrive.
Changing Places Toilet
Our Changing Places toilet is next to the disabled car parking spaces. The room has adequate space in the changing area for the user and up to two career’s. There is a height-adjustable adult-sized changing bench and tracking/mobile hoist. You will need to bring a key or ask in the Red River Café for the door to be unlocked. There is an additional four disabled toilets’ in each of the main areas of the site.

Please be a responsible owner and pop the poop in one of the many bins provided around the site, and be mindful that not all of our visitors love dogs as much as you or we do, so we recommend keeping your dog on a lead.
