Planning a visit to Little Moreton Hall? We want everyone to enjoy their visit. We hope that this page assists you as you plan your visit and if there’s anything else you would like to know or anything we can help with, please get in touch.

Arrival & parking facilities

Parking bays next to the visitor welcome building are available for visitors who are Blue Badge holders. The surface in this first section of the car park is tarmac, while the middle section of the car park and the overflow has uneven crushed stone surfaces. The distance to the property from the car park is approximately 100 yards on level ground. It is possible to drop off visitors at the front door if required, please contact the Hall prior to your visit if you would like to arrange this. We do not have a transfer vehicle but we do offer manual wheelchairs which are available to borrow from our visitor welcome building. We have 3 manual wheelchairs available for loan and although they can be borrowed on the day of your visit; we do recommend calling in advance to book a wheelchair.

Visitor Welcome Building

There is a very slight slope leading up to the entrance door and the entrance door is 1 metre wide. The entrance door opens manually and staff can assist if needed. Although there are no chairs available in the building, but there are benches outside.  The reception desks are 80cm high and there is an induction loop at the first till. We have braille and large print guides available for loan, please ask a member of staff for these prints. There are some sloping stones outside the exit door which can be a little bit difficult for wheelchairs.

The Hall

The Hall is located approximately 100 yards from the visitor welcome building.  There is a concrete approach to the hall, then a stone bridge at the entrance, after which visitors encounter a cobbled courtyard which can be difficult for wheelchair users. Unfortunately we cannot allow powered mobility vehicles inside the Hall due space restrictions and the wear and tear on the building. You can request a manual wheelchair at the Hall entrance if you haven’t already picked one up from the visitor welcome building. The ground floor rooms (apart from the Chapel) can be reached internally without encountering steps. We have a portable ramp to allow access to the Chapel; please ask the member of staff on the bridge if you require this. The doorways on the ground floor (the Exhibition Room) are wide enough for a wheelchair to pass through. Floor surfaces in the hall vary from flagstones to polished wood and floors are uneven in some rooms.  A virtual tour is available on the ground floor for those unable to use the stairs.  Our guided tours take place on the ground floor only and are wheelchair friendly.

Garden

The majority of the garden can be reached without encountering steps, but there are some steps (without handrails) to access the moat path and the Knot Garden.  The paths are gravelled and there is a grassed orchard and there are grass paths in the Knot Garden.  The paths in the garden are level and there are no gates. The moat path is narrow, particularly on the west side, and can be slippery in wet conditions. The stone path into the hall via the backdoor (from the Knot Garden) can get very slippery when it’s wet.
