Disabled Access Day 2018

Whilst the next national Disabled Access Day is not until 2019, St Paul’s hosted its own Disabled Access Day on 10 March, designed to put disabled people at the heart of Cathedral life and to showcase what the Cathedral offers to suit the diverse needs of all its visitors.

Activities included TouchTours led by Cathedral guides, clay and mosaic workshops and pop-up discovery tables as well as guided tours throughout the day. Multimedia guides that have British Sign Language, subtitles, audio described and family tours were available for visitors, as they are every day.

Lynn Johnson, Visits Manager at St Paul’s, said: “When Christopher Wren was designing St Paul’s, the concept of accessibility was still centuries away. But in recent times, we have worked incredibly hard to be inclusive of all people and Disabled Access Day gives us the chance to show people they should not be nervous or intimidated about visiting us, whether as a sightseer or worshipper.”

St Paul’s is fully accessible throughout the Cathedral floor and the Crypt for visiting and for services and invests in excellent training for those that deliver tours and multimedia guides to enhance the experience of all our visitors.

We would be grateful if anyone who attended Disabled Access Day at St Paul’s could complete a short survey to help us improve and develop our accessibility provisions in the future.
