La Garenne Lemot: Accessibility

La Garenne Lemot Estate has been taking steps to improve the accessibility of its site for people with disabilities so as to ensure greater convenience and comfort for all its visitors.

An accessible interpretive trail is currently under development.

Access to our sites is free for people with disabilities and the person accompanying them, upon presentation of proof.

For small groups of visitors with disabilities, we can arrange a tour or a suitable theme-based workshop. Bookings obligatory.
