Visiting Knebworth House
All tours are guided, except on busy weekends, when “free-flow” tours operate with House Wardens in key areas.
Groups will be split into parties of 25 maximum. Guided Tours take approximately 1 hour; however, we can vary the timing and content of a tour to suit the interests and needs of the group.
Ground Floor rooms are accessible to wheelchairs, but we ask that pushchairs and mobility scooters are not used in the House or Raj exhibition.
As an historic building, the House regrettably has no lift to the first floor. However, Knebworth’s history can be conveyed to visitors with impaired mobility on the ground floor.
Wheelchair accessible toilets are located at the entrance of the gardens, in the House and at the Adventure Playground.
wheelchair is available for use from the Gift Shop. Unfortunately, the wheelchair cannot be reserved.
Parking is available directly in front of the House by prior arrangement.
The Garden paths are mostly gravel.
Guide dogs for the blind and hearing dogs for the deaf are permitted throughout the House, Gardens and Park.
Knebworth House operates the standard admission policy that any paying visitor with a disability requiring an essential carer can be accompanied by one essential carer free of charge – providing that the carer can present proof of carer status on arrival at the ticket kiosks. Without proof of carer status standard admission entry charges will apply. Any further members of the party will pay full price. In consultation with Carers UK we recognise ‘proof of carer’ status as: Notice of entitlement for Carer’s Allowance or Carer’s Credit (Decision letter or similar is acceptable), or a signed letter from GP or medical professional or Social Services highlighting full time carer status for the disabled person. (Please note that organisers of external events may have their own policies.)
During your visit, there is always a Duty Manager available who can be contacted by any member of staff to offer visitors help and assistance.
