The basics

Meeting point

Enter the exhibition via the South Terrace. The Welcome team will direct you.


There is ramped access to the Morning Room and seating inside. Assistance dogs welcome. The space is relatively quiet but ear defenders are available to borrow from Welcome for adults and children.


The exhibition is inside a Grade II* historic building. We ask that no food or drink is consumed inside the exhibition as it attracts pests that can damage the interior.
