There are lifts at each end of the building. Floors are tiles or hardwood and galleries are designed to allow a wheelchair user free movement around the displays.The Welcome area is accessible by a ramp. The shop has a step but level access is available by entering and exiting through the same door and entering the rest of the Welcome area by the ramp. A sensory bag is available at the museum reception, which is free for visitors to borrow. Inside a drawstring bag is a pair of universal ear defenders, wraparound sunglasses, magnifying glass and a selection of fidget/sensory toys to enhance a visit to the Museum. "

Windsor Great Park - "Explore Windsor Great Park and you will discover a Royal history spanning over 1,000 years, including - historical monuments, ancient forests and stunning horticultural displays, as well as rare wildlife, plants and fungi." - "The Long Walk provides a smooth and even tarmac path which runs for 2.5 miles (4.2km) from Windsor Castle gates all the way up to Snow Hill. However, the path does not run all the way to the Copper Horse statue itself - although does join a road that continues to traverse the Deer Park, towards Bishopsgate in one direction and Rangers Gate in the other direction."
