Wollaton Hall and Deer Park

A lift! A lift set inside a country house - to three floors! Visiting Wollaton has genuinely changed my opinions and beliefs in terms of what should be possible - accessibility-wise - in stately homes. Although it is not an enormous house, nevertheless it is pretty enough, plus it provides the opportunity to explore more of Nottingham as it is only a short car journey from the city centre (approximately 10 minutes).

My only niggles are small - there appears to be a lift at the front (presumably for disabled users as it looked similar to stair lifts I have seen before), but this does not work which is a shame - I suspect it has not worked for some time as it is not listed on the web site as an accessible route in. For this reason it gets four stars for accessibility. The terrain is mostly flat has a small slope but this is quite steep if you're in a manual chair. Nothing anyone can do about the geography though, so I list it for information purposes rather than as a criticism.

All-in-all a pleasant visit, probably 2-3 hours worth of activity, highly recommended and best of all - free!
