Accessibility

Welcome! Headstone Manor & Museum aims to be as accessible as possible and meet the needs of all our visitors. If you have any questions regarding access please contact us on 020 8863 6720 or e-mail info@headstonemanor.org

Accessibility around the site – The entrance to Headstone Manor & Museum is through the Small Barn which is sloped and two wide manual doors to get in. Please let staff or the Duty Manager in the Visitor Centre/The Moat Cafe (level building to the left of the Small Barn) know if you require any assistance opening the doors.

There are five buildings on the Headstone Manor & Museum site. The Great Barn, Small Barn and Visitor Centre/The Moat Cafe are all wheelchair accessible. As well as the ground floors of the Manor House and Granary.

The Manor House is a Grade 1 listed historic building and houses the main museum. It has several rooms with a small step up in the door way as well as some low thresholds and uneven floors in places. The Manor House contains a platform lift to take visitors up to the first floor but the doorway leading out of the lift room is only 70cm wide. There is a small step into one room upstairs, and there are two rooms which can only be accessed via a staircase with a rope handrail.

Images of all the rooms and all the Museum displays on the first floor can be viewed on a handheld tablet available from the first room in the Manor House. The handheld tablets also enable you to listen to the main museum displays being read aloud.

Our staff and volunteer hosts will be happy to assist visitors where possible.

Animals – Guide dogs are admitted in all buildings. There is a dog water bowl outside the Visitor Centre/The Moat Café and we are in Headstone Manor Park which has plenty of green space for dogs to use.

Parking – There is a free car park in Pinner View, 100m from the entrance of Headstone Manor Museum. There are Blue Badge spaces on the closest side of the car park to the museum (on the left as you drive in)
