We believe that everyone should be able to experience the riches of Wentworth Woodhouse, regardless of any access requirements. As you may imagine, this is a tall order for an old country house, but we are doing our best, taking extra care while the House continues to have building work carried out for essential structural repairs.
We’re working hard to create an inclusive and accessible site for all, making improvements throughout our regeneration plan.
This page contains information which we hope will be helpful for our visitors with access requirements.
