Our Tramper Vehicles
Due to the topography of the Garden there are steep sections, steps to some paths and water drainage bumps, making manual wheelchair use difficult.
If you have any access needs, including using your own mobility scooter, please call us on 01326 252200 before booking.
Our Tramper vehicles are back in action!
Our Tramper mobility vehicles are available to hire from 9.30am to 10.30am for all day use and must be pre-booked. To book, please call the office on 01326 252200 or email [email protected].
These vehicles cannot access the visitor centre, therefore please bring any other walking aides that you might require.
Bringing Your Own Vehicle
If you intend to use your own vehicle, please consider if it is suitable for steep hill use and able to operate on uneven surfaces.
Please see the notes below to inform your decision:
Your vehicle needs an approximate clearance of at least 125 mm or 5 inches to get over the gravel bumps
You will need a fully charged battery
All paths are compacted gravel with loose chippings, and some have a new resin surface - please note that some areas are steep
All vehicles MUST stay on the designated routes given to you by our entrance staff
Please note – DO NOT drive on the shingle or sand whilst accessing the beach area. Please keep to the large concrete area
The accessible route is NOT on the Children’s Trail routes
Footpaths vary in width, but most are about 1m (3 feet) wide
There are many benches throughout the garden
Please be aware, when travelling up hills weight will transfer to the back of the vehicle, so please avoid heavy items being stored on the back i.e. bags
