Access at the LSI


We have wheelchair access at the LSI, and alternative entrances.

Main Entrance.  There are 7 steps leading up to the main front door which takes you into the foyer and then through to the café.  During working hours the door is always open.  There is a secondary glass door which is sometimes closed, depending on weather conditions.

Disabled Access.  We have a platform lift for wheelchairs and buggies from pavement level to lower ground which is self-serve, and an entrance at lower ground level for wheelchair users and people who find stairs difficult.  The lift is suitable for wheelchairs and the basement door opens at the push of a button.  On entrance to the building, follow the flagstone corridor to the courtyard area.  To the right is our internal lift which can take you from Basement (B) up to Ground floor level (G) where the café and workhub are.

Mobility Scooters.  Unfortunately, due to narrow turning and access points, our seating areas and lifts are not suitable for some mobility scooters.

Guide & assistance dogs are very welcome.

If you have any access requirements which are not covered here, please do contact us by email or telephone 01308 480480.
