National Civil War Centre
National Civil War Trail - includes app store logos


The National Civil War Centre has been refurbished to modern standards of accessibility. As such, we are fully accessible to wheelchair users, and also offer fully accessible toilets.

If you need specific information about your individual access needs, including services available for deaf, hard of hearing, blind and partially sighted visitors, please contact or call one of our team on 01636 655 765 and we can make arrangements for your needs, including the hire of our wheelchairs.

Accessible car parking is recommended at the nearby Appletongate Car Park. More parking info can be found here.

We now have an autism-friendly backpack available for visitors. If you or a member of your party might react aversely to sensory stimulants, just ask for the backpack on arrival. It's full of things which are designed to make your visit more comfortable and enjoyable from protective ear muffs to a sensory ball, sensory floor plan, a soft toy to share your adventure with, and more.
