Come along Salts Mill Road, pass the 'Visitors Parking' sign and continue past the chimney where you will see a glass canopy with disabled parking spaces. Level access to all public areas and the lift is through the tunnel opposite these parking spaces. For additional information or help please call 01274 531163 during opening hours.
