Facilities & access at Weston Park museum
Weston Park is a historic building and as a result there is no dedicated car parking at the Museum. The nearest public car park is the Q Park on Durham Road, just a 5 minute walk away.
There are three disabled parking spaces directly adjacent the museum at the top of Mushroom Lane and a further three disabled parking spaces available toward the bottom of Mushroom Lane near the tennis courts (access to the museum from these is through the park). Blue badge holders may also park in the Pay & Display bays on Mushroom Lane, (near the Dam House entrance) and those on Damer Street near to the Weston Park gates without the need to pay or adhere to the 4 hour max stay. Similar Pay & Display bays are also available for use a little further away on Northumberland Road.
Weston Park is fully wheelchair accessible. All exhibitions and displays are on the ground floor of the building and the upstairs activity rooms are easily accessible via the lift. Wheelchairs are available to borrow on request.
The Museum has ground and upper floor toilets with disabled access and baby change facilities.
The Museum has lockers and space for buggys and prams to be left in the main foyer.
We welcome guide and hearing dogs only to the Museum.
Are available in the activity rooms and shop.
