Venue Access and Facilities
The show at Alexandra Palace is all on one level including the Workshop Programme. However, because the Palace is on a hill, there are steps to the entrance. Wheelchair users can be dropped off at the top of the slip road and can enter the entrance doors via the slope.
There are several disabled toilets at the venue, and we will retain wider aisles this year.
Due to new regulations imposed by the local council, it is no longer possible for blue badge holders to park at the front of the building. Instead, blue badge parking is by the BBC tower, but we will have a small buggy to transport disabled visitors to the entrance. (Please note this vehicle ony takes a few passengers at a time and may mean a short wait. The alternative is a ‘flat’ 8 minute walk to the entrance).
Carers assisting visitors with a registered disability can select a free carer ticket when booking tickets online or at the show. Please bring proof of eligibility with you to show on arrival. The carer will be allowed access to the VIP lounge but are not entitled to any additional benefits associated with the VIP package.
