Access

The William Morris Gallery is fully accessible, with an accessible entrance, accessible toilets and lift access to all floors. 

We have three Blue Badge parking bays. Access is via Forest Road. The Gallery gates are kept locked to prevent unauthorised parking. Blue badge holders are therefore asked to call the Gallery on 020 8496 1470 when they arrive and someone will come and let you in. If you don't have a mobile phone you can call us in advance so we know to expect you.

An induction loop and large print labels are available at reception. Please contact us if you require British Sign Language (BSL) interpretation to take part in any of our talks and events.

We also have two manual wheelchairs for visitors to borrow, please contact us if you would like to reserve one for your visit.

The Acanthus room on the second floor is used for talks and private hire. The doorway is quite narrow (width 63cm). If you have any concerns about the width of your wheelchair please contact us and, where possible, we can provide extra assistance or relocate the event.

We can also offer the following services to visitors with disabilities:

  • Braille
  • A BSL introduction to the Gallery
  • Touch tours by appointment
  • Guided tours by appointment
  • Pre-booked speech to text tours

You can find more detailed information in the Gallery's DisabledGo access guide.

To discuss your access requirements in detail please contact our access champion Mhairi Muncaster on 020 8496 1485, or email mhairi.muncaster@walthamforest.gov.uk.
