Access for wheelchair users:

The upper section of Leonardslee Gardens i.e., entrance, restaurants, gift shops, Dolls House Exhibition, wallaby enclosure, and The Rock Garden, are wheelchair friendly. Access to the lower parts of Leonardslee requires using woodland paths which may not be suitable for wheelchairs, depending on the weather conditions. Please be aware that many of these slopes are steep and wheelchairs users may need assistance. We are currently trialing options to make our paths more accessible and will release more details as we make progress.

There are parking and toilet facilities available for wheelchair users.
