Wheelchair access

The ground floor of Keats House is accessible for wheelchair users.

Unfortunately due to the listed status of the building there is no lift access to the first floor or basement. However a touch screen in the orientation area contains images and content relating to these floors.

All of our events are accessible for wheelchair users unless otherwise stated in the event description. There is level access to events in the Nightingale Room (next door in the library building). Access to events in the Chester Room (inside Keats House) is via a portable ramp into the conservatory.

Mobility scooters are permitted in the building. However users should note that the rooms are very small so access to some areas may be difficult.


An accessible toilet is available. 


One parking bay is available within the grounds of Keats House for blue badge holders. Please contact the team in advance to reserve it. Parking in residents' bays is free on Sundays.

Guide dogs

Guide dogs are welcome at Keats House.

Audio transcripts

Transcripts are available for our two audio points. These are located next to the audio installations. Our introductory film in the basement has subtitles.
