Visitors with mobility needs

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.

Free admission for carers

Admission for visitors with a disability is at the published rates but an accompanying carer is admitted free of charge.
