It is important to us that everyone can enjoy the use of our Gardens and this website.
Disabled visitors are always welcome and with most areas being very much on the flat they are easily accessible by wheelchair users. There are only a small handful of areas that cannot be accessed by wheelchairs and there is plenty of seating for disabled visitors' assistants, visitors with limited mobility, or for visitors who just want to sit back and take it all in!
We are the recipients of an award from the Rutland Access Group for our disabled facilities, which include: Disabled parking, disabled toilets, ramp access to gardens where necessary. We have three complimentary wheelchairs available – but they are very popular so it is advisable to pre-book them.
This website has been checked with the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) and is compliant to the AAA standard.
You can change the text size on our website if you’re having trouble reading it. This is how to change the text size in recent versions of the three major browsers:
- Microsoft Internet Explorer users: select 'View', then 'Text size', then select desired size.
- Netscape and Firefox users: select 'View', then 'Text zoom’ then select desired size. Text size (100%) is the default original text size.
If you're a Windows user with a scroll-wheel mouse, you can use 'Ctrl' and the scroll-wheel to increase text size. If you use another browser, look at its help section for tips on increasing text size.
If you do not use a mouse, you can use this website with your keyboard instead. If you use Windows, press Ctrl + tab key, then use the tab key to move to the link you want.
Some browsers support jumping to specific links by typing keys defined on the web site. On Windows, with Internet Explorer, you can press the 'alt' key and the access key together, followed by the 'enter' key; on Firefox, Netscape, Safari and Mozilla you don't need the 'enter' key; with Opera you press 'shift', 'escape' and the access key together. It is the same on Macintosh, except you press the 'ctrl' key instead of the 'alt' key.
Please note: access keys are only supported in Microsoft Internet Explorer 4 and above and Netscape 6.x versions.
