Visitor Information

Disabled Access
 
It has to be kept in mind that The Castle of Mey is an historic building and, consequently, disabled access is not possible to all parts of it. Nevertheless, we will always try to assist our less able visitors to enjoy as much of it as possible.

If visiting the castle itself, please note the following:

  • If you have difficulty walking, please ask at the ticket office to be allowed to park closer to the castle entrance. The distance from the car park to the castle is about 200 metres.
  • If you have a wheelchair, you will probably want to avoid crowds, so we suggest that you telephone first to find out the best time to come.
  • We regret that wheelchair access is limited to the principal floor only and you must be able to get out of your wheelchair to use our very small lift.

Situated beside the car park, the tearoom, shop and toilets in the visitor centre are completely 'user friendly' and there is easy access for wheelchairs.
