Getting Around the Centre

The Royal Armouries front doors is wide enough for easy wheelchair access. In addition to this, a DDA compliant registration point is also available to wheelchair delegates. All of our meeting and conference rooms have step-free access via corridors wide enough to easily manoeuvre a wheelchair.

We have four passenger lifts, all of which can accommodate a wheelchair. One of these is a fireman’s lift that can be used in the event of an evacuation.

There is no fixed seating at the Royal Armouries, therefore wheelchair spaces can be positioned anywhere in the meeting rooms. We can fit a wheelchair ramp to the stage in larger meeting areas, or arrange a portable wheelchair lift to provide access to the stage in smaller meeting rooms.

Disabled Toilet Facilities

There are accessible toilet facilities throughout the Royal Armouries. These are equipped with emergency alarms and can be accessed from all of our rooms by using lifts where necessary.

Assistance and Guide Dogs

You are welcome to bring your guide dog, hearing dog or other assistance dog into the Royal Armouries.

Induction Loops

Most of our rooms have permanent induction loops for the audio impaired, and in the remainder, they can be fitted by arrangement with Royal Armouries Live. If you are a delegate at an event requiring this facility, please contact your event organiser who will arrange this for you.

Personal Evacuation Plans

We must ensure that everyone can be safely evacuated in the unlikely event of an emergency. If you feel that your disability could delay evacuation of yourself or others via the fire escape stairs, please contact the Royal Armouries prior to your event on +44 113 200 1990 to agree a mutually convenient personal evacuation plan.
