CAN YOU ACCOMMODATE MY DISABILITY?
The Mill Outlet is on several floors, but there is a lift. Entry to the ground floor is level access. Toilets are fully accessible. The Museum building is on one level, with level entry from the street. Toilets in The Royal are accessible with no steps. Entry to The Royal is via a sloping ramp. We are sorry, but due to their age and design our buses cannot carry wheelchairs or buggies unless they can be folded flat, and all have step-entrances. If you have any specific needs, please contact us in advance (details below) and we will do everything we can to assist you.
HOW DO I CONTACT YOU FOR MORE INFORMATION?
