Accessibility & facilities

We welcome all visitors to enjoy the Visitors Centre experience and have endeavoured, where possible, to ensure that our facilities are accessible – including the car park, the main entrance, the Unicorn restaurant, the toilets, our Old Tom conference room and the shop where visitors can learn more about the brewing process and Robinsons history – without taking the Tour. 

The only areas which are not wheelchair accessible are those covered by the Brewery Tour. Please be aware that the Brewery Tour is around our working traditional tower brewery and as such involves steep stairways and some narrow walkways.

  • Induction Loops are available. Please ask at the front reception and switch Hearing Aids to the ‘T’ position to use this facility. 
  • Fully accessible toilets and baby changing areas are available.
  • Facilities are available for wheelchair access in the Visitors Centre.
