Access to our building

We aim to make all visitors welcome. Please download the Arnolfini Access Statement for help planning your visit.

Our building was redeveloped to ensure that physical access within the building was improved for everyone. Our facilities include:

- Lifts access to all floors of Arnolfini.

- Baby changing facilities to make it easier for those with young children.

- Accessible toilets on every floor of the building.

- An induction hearing loop system.

- Large print exhibition guides are available in the galleries, from the Welcome Desk and in the Reading Room or can be download here.

- During exhibitions, transcripts and large print transcripts are available for any audio pieces in the galleries and from the Welcome Desk.

- Accessible parking spaces directly outside the main entrance (accessed via Farr’s Lane. If you don’t have an assistant, please phone ahead to get the barrier lifted). These spaces require a parking permit which can be collected from the front desk on arrival and are issued on a first come first served basis.

- A wheelchair available for use inside the building.

- We are very happy to welcome Guide and Assistance Dogs
