Upton Country Park

ACCESSIBILITY & FINDING YOUR WAY AROUND

Accessibility

In and around the country park

There is a network of hard-surfaced wheel-friendly footpaths throughout much of the park, marked on our maps below. There are also several kissing gates across the parkland and woodland areas, each is accessible with a RADAR key.

The Walled Garden is laid mainly to lawn, with hard surfaced paths at the perimeter. The Walled Garden and walkway up to the car park is well lit from just before dusk. Accessible toilets are located in the car park and by the Tea Rooms (RADAR key).

Upton House

Access to Upton House ground floor includes several steps; we have entrance/exit ramps for wheelchair & pushchair users and those with limited mobility. Only ground floor rooms are used for civil ceremonies and wedding receptions; facilities include disabled toilets, baby changing facilities and a hearing loop system.
