Facilities for Disabled People at The Gibberd Garden

We Warmly Welcome All Visitors

The following facilities are available:

  • Designated disabled parking outside the Barn tea room.
  • Step-free access to the tea-room
  • Step-free access to the House
  • A disabled toilet
  • Level paths in the immediate area around the House

Wheelchair Access

The Garden was designed as a private garden and has uneven paths, steps and sloping banks.  So we apologise that access for wheelchair users and those with poor mobility is therefore limited.

The Sensory Garden

Introducing the newest addition to The Gibberd Garden: The Sensory Garden!

We are thrilled to announce the opening of our latest venture, The Sensory Garden. This new space has been carefully designed with accessibility in mind to ensure that everyone, including those with disabilities or special needs, can fully enjoy the beauty of our garden.

Featuring a working fountain, two benches, one of which is a talking bench providing insightful information about The Gibberd Garden, its sculptures, sensory plants, and the legacy of Sir Frederick Gibberd). This sensory haven promises a delightful experience for all visitors.

Moreover, we’re incredibly grateful to the Boshier-Hinton Foundation for their generous donation, which has made the creation of the Sensory Garden possible. Their support has enabled us to enhance accessibility and inclusivity, allowing more people to connect with nature and enjoy the wonders of our garden.

Join us in celebrating this wonderful addition and embark on a journey of sensory delight at The Gibberd Garden.
