Please note, however, we are unable to provide one-to-one mobility assistance within bedrooms, treatment rooms and swimming pools or generally around the Hall. As our staff are not trained medical practitioners, nor are they able to lift guests, we advise you to consider being accompanied by someone who can help you to make the best use of our facilities, in addition to enjoying using them. Finally, we are conscious that because of its age and size the building is not the most disabled-friendly, thus we encourage you to contact us if you have any specific requirements to allow us to offer help and advice for you to plan your visit.
