The visitor centre and gift shop are accessed from the car park through double doors, with an button for remote opening from a wheelchair. There is a low admissions desk.

Toilets: accessible toilets available and located as you leave the visitor centre into the abbey including baby changing facilities.

Dogs must be kept on leads at all times and non-assistance dogs must remain on the ground floor only.

The abbey is mainly flat and laid to grass with some gravel paths. The site can be enjoyed at ground level, but there are a few small steps dotted around the site.

Please note most of the church has ongoing conservation work; there is currently limited access to this area including for wheelchair users.

This area of the site is assessed via a modern metal staircase or via a ramp.
