All visitors to Woodhorn will find a visit rewarding with almost all of the buildings open to the public fully accessible: only one or two places in the old colliery buildings are a little more challenging.
Visitors are welcome to borrow one of three wheelchairs or a motorised scooter during their visit, and staff are happy to discuss any special requirements in advance of a visit.
Please note that the Dark Side guided tours are only suitable for able bodied visitors.

Dogs at Woodhorn
Assistance dogs are welcome at Woodhorn, but family pets are not allowed in the fenced museum area. If you would like to understand why dogs are not allowed, please read the policy here.
It would be best to leave your dog at home if possible as Woodhorn's car park does not offer any shade.
