Listed buildings can often pose difficulties for those with limited mobility or other disabilities. However, when The Roundhouse was refurbished and restored, one of the key requirements was that the design scheme should create an environment that is easily accessible to everyone.

This has certainly been achieved. Level thresholds, lift access to all rooms and floors, and a colour and signage scheme that provides easy navigation for the partially and non-sighted have all been incorporated into the renovation of The Roundhouse.

The Roundhouse also includes the following features which make it a unique and friendly event space, accessible for all.

Pedestrian access routes at each corner, minimising travel distances
Raised lawns are wheel chair accessible to ensure everyone can access the landscaped areas
Disabled parking spaces are located suitably close to their respective entrances
A compound for guide dogs is available which provides for exercise, feeding, drink and latrine requirements
Raised kerbs at the bus stops to reduce the step up or down onto buses
Textured pavements
Hearing loop systems at key points
Signage is generally pictograms, raised and textured where accessible, to give simple and intuitive navigation to non-English speaking visitor
