Information about Exbury for those with disabilities and additional mobility needs

We 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 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.

We have manual wheelchairs available to borrow at no additional cost. No reservation is required - just ask for one at the Visitor Entrance.

We also have three mobility scooters available for hire at £5 for three hours.

Please note that we reserve the right to refuse to hire a mobility scooter for health and safety reasons if we do not feel that a potential user could drive the scooter safely.
