Visitors with mobility needs
The lift in the adjoining building is currently out of service. We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes. Please do call ahead before your visit to check if this has been repaired and in use.
The Main Hall of the Banqueting House is accessible via a lift in an adjoining property, Monday - Friday only. The Banqueting House does not manage the adjoining property and therefore cannot always guarantee the use of the lift. Please call in advance to check availability - 020 3166 6155/6154/6152 - especially if you plan to visit on a Saturday, Sunday or are attending a function.
This entrance to the lift is 27” (approx. 68.58cm) and it is 30” (approx. 76.2cm) deep. Therefore, a portable or standard size wheelchair is required. There is also a ramp down to The Undercroft.
Visitors with visual or hearing difficulties
There is a Braille guide for the visually impaired and induction loops are available for those who need hearing assistance. Please ask for these services on arrival.
