Access and parking


Avoncroft Museum is a 19-acre open-air site of historic buildings.

The buildings are linked by wide gravel paths and there are well positioned benches around the grounds. The site is mostly flat, although there is one steep hill to the ice house.

We have a number of manual wheelchairs and motorised mobility scooters available to borrow on request, please contact the Museum in advance by calling 01527 831363 to reserve one.

Avoncroft Museum is constantly working to improve the accessibility of the Museum and we always endeavour to meet our visitors’ requirements. If you have any specific requests or for more information please use our online contact form or call 01527 831363.
