It is our aim to make Tramway as accessible as possible for all our visitors.

This page includes general information about access and facilities in the venue, but if you have further questions or additional requirements please contact us before your visit.

All public areas in Tramway are wheelchair accessible, with lift access to the mezzanine and first floor.

Accessible toilets are available on all three public access levels and come equipped with handrails and emergency pull cords. All accessible toilets are single cubicle and gender neutral.

Assistance dogs are welcome at Tramway (please note, due to the nature of the building and our neighbours The Hidden Gardens, ONLY Assistance dogs are permitted.)

Individual exhibitions, events and performances may have specific access arrangements. Please check the event pages for more details.
