Enjoy exploring Westonbirt with a mobility scooter or wheelchair

Visitors with mobility issues are welcome to use our free of charge mobility scooters, manual wheelchairs or manual trike wheelchair.

Is a mobility scooter right for you? 

Mobility scooters are easy to use, though do require a level of strength and the ability to be able to be driven without assistance. You will be given instructions on how to use the scooter on arrival. 

For safety please do not allow anyone else to ride the scooter with you including young children.

We reserve the right to refuse a mobility scooter if we believe it is not the right option for you and will offer other options if more suitable.  View our types of mobility equipment document.

How to book

The easiest way to book mobility equipment is by pre-booking your day admission - if equipment is available a prompt will appear asking if you require mobility assistance. You can then add the mobility aide to your basket.

Alternatively book your mobility equipment below and purchase a day admission ticket when you arrive at Westonbirt Arboretum. Please note at peak times of the year pre-booking day admission tickets before arrival is essential (Sat 30 Sep – Sun 12 Nov 2023).
