Access

Finding Burgh House

You can find all the various ways of reaching Burgh House on our "How to Find us" page here

The House

All of the ground floor including the Music Room, Library, shop and Art Gallery are accessible with step-free access from the entrance to the Peggy Jay Gallery. Unfortunately, due to the Grade I listed status of the building, there is no step-free access to the permanent collection or Christopher Wade exhibition space on the first floor.

Burgh House has an entrance for wheelchair users at the back of the house, accessible from New End Square (just up the hill from our main entrance!). Just ring the buzzer by the door and a member of staff will let you in and will be very happy to give you any directions or information you need.

This door takes you straight into the Peggy Jay Gallery, our beautiful modern art gallery which has a new exhibition every one to two weeks. There is a wheelchair accessible toilet at the opposite end of the gallery.

There are chairs in every room on the ground floor and on request, should you need to have a rest during your visit.

The Café

Our lovely café has fully accessible outdoor spaces; you can access our courtyard (open Wednesday-Friday & Sunday) from the gate at the back of the house (which also leads to the Peggy Jay Gallery entrance & wheelchair accessible toilet) and our front terrace via our front gate. The main café is accessible via a small flight of steps with handrails and a step lift. If you would like to use the lift, please ask a member or staff or use the buzzer at the back door to call a member of staff to assist you.
