Wheelchair accessible places to visit in Surrey

Thu Oct 28 2021

Based in Chessington, Surrey, we know how beautiful the surrounding areas are. Whether you are looking to have a day trip with the family or want a moment to explore the nature around you on your own, there are many sites and attractions to visit that are wheelchair friendly.

At Wheelfreedom, we recognise the importance of accessibility as it allows social inclusion for those with disabilities, reduced mobility, and the elderly. We truly believe everyone can live a fulfilled life which is why we have listed some of our favourite wheelchair accessible places to visit in Surrey.

Hampton Court Palace

Hampton Court Palace is a wonderful place to visit and is ideal for the entire family. Here, you can explore the Grade I listed Royal Palace and its stunning 60 acres of garden.

Getting to and from Hampton Court Palace is very easy since Hampton Court station has step free access. Hampton Court also has disabled parking and staff readily available to assist you with your needs. If you need a wheelchair or scooter, they have some readily available. It should be noted that these are only for the duration of your visit.

Most of Hampton Court can be accessed via a wheelchair and in some instances, lifts are available.

Guildford Cathedral

Guildford Cathedral is a peaceful and inspiring place to visit in Surrey. Welcoming visitors of all ages, guided tours, tea and coffee are available at this beautiful landmark. With disabled parking available and a ramp for access, the team will ensure you have a comfortable visit throughout!

Wheelchairs are available to use at the Cathedral but if you prefer something you can take home, why not hire one direct from ourselves?

Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking

Based in Dorking, Denbies Wine Estate is England's largest single estate vineyard with 265 acres of vine and is a popular attraction for many people visiting Surrey. Open all year round, Denbies offer tours and wine tasting, as well as overnight stays.

The venue is wheelchair friendly and is accessible to those with reduced mobility. Ramps are in place and disabled toilets are also available.

Brooklands Museum

Known as the ‘birthplace of motorsport, aviation and home of the Concorde’, Brooklands museum in Weybridge is the ideal place to visit for anyone who enjoys looking back in time. The museum is open for tours with regular events such as Auto Italia and Military Vehicles Day. There is also a bus museum for those who are generally interested in transport.

All exhibits at Brooklands Museum are wheelchair friendly. However, there is no wheelchair access on board their aeroplanes, including the Concorde. Friendly volunteers can be located throughout the museum and maps are available to every visitor.

Bocketts Farm

Bocketts Farm is the ideal family day trip. With many different animals including pigs, lambs and chicks, the farm is set in the heart of Surrey's countryside in Leatherhead. Here, you can watch their pig race, or ride a pony. There are plenty of activities for children whilst adults can relax in the tearoom.

Most of the farm is accessible, with wheelchairs available to use, subject to booking in advance. Disabled parking and toilets are also available.
