We welcome visitors with disabilities

  • Lift to all public floors
  • Disabled-friendly toilet on the ground floor
  • Loop systems for hearing aid users in both halls
  • However there are six steps up with handrails on both sides to the main entrance

We are committed to complete accessibility for disabled people by making the main entrance wheelchair-accessible. Due to the enormous generosity of a Sangha member, we will now be able to cover the £40 — 50,000 cost of installing external lift access in 2017.

If you are attending a course or event, please email us with any medical needs that you think we should be aware of, to make your experience as enjoyable as we can
