DISABLED FACILITIES

Floors Castle is largely accessible and we welcome visitors with different access requirements, however due to the historic nature of the castle and its grounds disabled access is limited in some areas.

 - Dedicated disabled parking at the Castle and at the Terrace Café and Plant Centre. The Castle car park is situated in a woodland setting and as such the ground is uneven in places.

 - A lift to assist entry to the Castle, the lift is quite narrow and can only take one standard size wheelchair

- Disabled toilets.

 - Ramps to assist entry into the Cafes and Gift Shop at ground level

 - Assistance dogs are welcome in all areas of the Castle, Gardens, Café’s and wider estate and water is available on request

DOGS

With our extensive grounds and fantastic riverside walks, it offers the perfect place to exercise your dogs.

We do welcome dogs but we ask that they are kept under control and on a lead at all times.

The Visitor Car Park is within woodlands so there is plenty of shade should you wish to leave your dog in the car whilst you visit the Castle.

We also offer seating outside at both our Courtyard Cafe and Terrace Café areas and bowls of water can be provided for your dogs.
