Reasons for trip

Although the National Slate Museum is in the C19th Dinorwic Quarry workshops, it has remarkably good disabled access.

There are disabled toilets in the cafe building.

There are disabled car parking bays.

There is level access into the museum and around the site, although there are old railway tracks running across the central courtyard which may present problems for wheelchair users.

The top of waterwheel is accessible by a lift although the walkway around the wheel is narrow and may present problems if there are a lot of other people around.

There is level access into the three Quarrymen’s houses but if busy there is limited space on the ground floor. There are steep steps to the bedrooms on the first floor.

Access to the pattern loft is up a stairway and there is no wheelchair access to this.

A wheelchair is available on request in the shop. This is allocated on a first come first served basis and cannot be prebooked.

Large print guidebooks are available on request and induction loops are available.
