Exbury Gardens aims to enable visitors with disabilities and additional mobility needs to use and enjoy the gardens, railway and facilities.
We at Exbury have made a considered attempt at ensuring that most of our facilities (including the railway) are accessible for all. Our main paths are suitable for wheelchairs and special maps that identify these routes are obtainable at the Visitor Entrance. Motorised scooters are welcomed at Exbury, however users are reminded to keep to the recommended pathways.
Carers are admitted free of charge into Exbury Gardens on a one-to-one basis when accompanying a caree who pays the normal admission rate. Please note that proof of disability and/or registered carer status may be requested.
Bays for blue badge holders are available at the front of the main car park nearest to the Visitor Entrance.
Exbury provides a limited number of non-motorized wheelchairs free of charge. These are available on a first come first served basis from the Visitor Entrance.
Exbury's railway has four carriages adapted to accommodate wheelchairs.
Passengers are permitted to alight the train at Exbury North Station and explore this part of the gardens, before returning on a later train. However, this is dependent on visitor numbers and we cannot guarantee that a carriage will be available.
Groups requiring more than one accessible carriage to be fitted are asked to advise in advance so this can be arranged without disrupting the published timetable.
Disabled toilets are located in the following places:
Our buggy service is designed to enable visitors with limited mobility to access the main areas of interest within Exbury Gardens. The chauffeur-driven buggy tours cost £5 per person and follows a set route around the gardens.
Buggies operate as a timetabled service on a first-come, first-served basis and visitors should be advised that queues can be expected, particularly in May and June.
