Guide dogs are welcome in all areas of the Old Royal Naval College including the Visitor Centre, Chapel and Painted Hall. Grassy areas of the site can be used as spend areas and bins are provided.

Large print guides and magnifiers are available in the Visitor Centre. Please ask at our welcome desk.

The Visitor Centre and Chapel are both brightly lit. Light levels in the Painted Hall have to be kept lower for conservation reasons.

Members of our friendly visitor services team have been trained to assist with guiding. If you are planning a visit and would benefit from a guide or support getting to the site from Cutty Sark DLR station please call 020 8269 4799 or email [email protected]

Guided audio described tours are available for blind and partially-sighted visitors. These tours are led by staff and volunteers who have been trained in audio description by Vocaleyes. Check our access events page for more details on upcoming events. We run regular audio-described tours in the Painted Hall and can also arrange tours for groups and individuals on request with at least two weeks’ notice. Please call 020 8269 4799 or email [email protected] for more details.
