Due to its historic and natural setting in the Lake District, Muncaster presents some challenges to those with restricted mobility. We endeavour to provide access wherever possible within the constraints of our topography and responsibilities in caring for a Grade I listed castle and its associated buildings.
The Castle is approximately half a mile from Main Gate; therefore we advise people with limited mobility to park in the coach and disabled car park which is much closer to all facilities. This is about 1/3 mile south of the main car park on the A595.
Powered chair users and those with mobility scooters may nevertheless prefer to use the main car park and enjoy the approach down the main drive through the gardens. Your driver can bring a vehicle round to the coach park entrance should your batteries start to run down.

We were the winners of Cumbria Tourist Board's 1999 "Tourism For All" award.
Muncaster staff have had "Welcome All" and "Welcome Host" training.
Muncaster are also positive about employing people with disabilities
