Croome, a National Trust property, near Upton upon Severn, wants to thank visitors for helping to raise funds for a new electric scooter, enabling it to continue to make its historic house and parkland more accessible to visitors.
To help visitors explore the stunning ‘Capability’ Brown parkland, on the many hard paths throughout the gardens, there is free use of electric scooters and manual wheelchairs which can be booked in advance with a handy accessibility map available too.
Additionally, a shuttle bus, which is also wheelchair accessible, runs between the Visitor Centre and the house for those that that may find the walk difficult.
Croome Court, the historic house that stands proudly at the heart of the parkland, would have once proved inaccessible to many but a ‘stair climber’ enables entry for manual wheelchair users up the sweeping flight of steps.
Disabled visitors, who pay an admission fee or show their membership card at Croome, can apply for a ‘Access for all Admit One Card’ which gives free access to the property for their carer to accompany them. The cards can be obtained by calling the National Trust on 01793 817 634.
