Reasons for trip

The ground floor is accessible to wheelchair users but access to the first floor rooms is by staircase only. There is an AV room on the ground floor with a video presentation and the audio guide also includes a video tour of the first floor for visitors who cannot use the stairs.

The Royal Pavilion can get very busy, particularly if there is a guided tour and there may be restricterd space to move with a wheelchair. Late afternoon may be quieter.

The most important and impressive public rooms are on the ground floor. The first floor is less interesting with Queen Victoria’s private apartments and the Yellow Bow Rooms which were used which were used by George. IV’s brothers. Some of the smaller rooms contain exhibitions about the Royal Pavilion, its restoration and history.

Visitors using mobility scooters are asked to leave them at the front entrance and use one of the manual wheelchairs available. They also have a mobile walker with a seat which can be used on the ground floor. Some of the doorways are narrow or have tight turns that may be difficult with a powered wheelchair. Companions/carers are admitted free of charge. There is an accessible toilet on the ground floor.
