Some of the facilities and assistance available so that everyone can get around:

  • adjacent to Westminster London Underground station – one of the most accessible and step-free tube stations in London;
  • step free access to the estate via the Cromwell Green and Portcullis House visitor entrances;
  • accessible toilets on all floors equipped with emergency alarms;
  • permanent induction loops in most of our venues;
  • wide internal corridors allowing access throughout the building;
  • passenger lifts for ease of movement between floors;
  • most access routes through the building are uncarpeted floors enabling ease of manoeuvrability for wheelchair users;
  • no fixed seating in our venues allowing flexibility for positioning of wheelchair users;
  • can fit a wheelchair ramp to staging in our larger venues;
  • guide dogs, hearing dogs and other assistance dogs welcome;
  • Visitor Assistants are on hand both outside and within the Palace of Westminster to offer assistance and help answer any questions you might have.

Please speak with us for further information on specific support for people with mobility, hearing or visual impairments.
