Assistance animals

Assistance animals are welcome. We recommend that if possible animals wear a jacket or lead slip to identify them as working.

Staff reserve the right to ask visitors to remove their animal if it is deemed not to be behaving appropriately. Arrangements will then be made for the visitor to return without their animal. Please contact [email protected] for more information.



Accessible toilets are located in the Gallery once you have purchased a ticket and also in the Café in the Mews courtyard.



The shop is located opposite the Café and next to the entrance to The Queen’s Gallery. The shop is on one level with wooden flooring. There is a one-way route in operation through the shop and capacity will be limited. There is a hand sanitiser station at the entrance point and the shop is operating cashless.
