There is one disabled toilet in the House.
Goodwood always welcomes visitors and guests with disabilities. The House, tearoom and shop are fully accessible for wheel-chair users. Ramp access is available at the Front Entrance.
All rooms open to the public are situated on the ground floor and there are no stairs to negotiate. An accessible lavatory is also available in the State Rooms.
Information sheets are available in every room to provide details on works of art where labels are inaccessible to wheelchair users. These are also available to visitors in large print on request.
Disabled visitors driving themselves are welcome to park their vehicles on either side of the turning circle at the front of the House; alternatively, if they are not driving they may be dropped off and then collected at the Front Door. A manual wheel-chair is available for hire at no charge, but as there is only one available this operates a first come, first served basis. We have a hearing loop available on request for visitors on guided tours at no charge, but this should also be booked in advance.
There are no public tours in August during the Summer exhibition when the rooms are stewarded instead.
We do not have a shop at Goodwood House, however it is possible to buy postcards and guide books from the front desk (subject to availability).
Goodwood House is still a privately owned house so there is limited signage. Please follow the small green signs that are on site and enter via the South Lodge and exit via Park Lodge.
