Access to the Venue

We aim to make all visitors welcome in the building. For help planning your visit please download the following:

The Arnolfini building was redeveloped to ensure that physical access within the building was improved for everyone. Their facilities include:

  • Lifts access to all floors of Arnolfini.
  • Baby changing facilities to make it easier for those with young children.
  • Accessible toilets.
  • Accessible parking spaces directly outside the main entrance (accessed via Farr’s Lane. If you don’t have an assistant, please phone ahead to get the barrier lifted). These spaces require a parking permit which can be collected from the front desk on arrival and are issued on a first come first served basis.
  • A wheelchair available for use inside the building.
  • We are very happy to welcome Guide and Assistance Dogs
