Accessibility at the Hampton Court Palace Music Festival
Hampton Court Palace is an historic building and, therefore, has uneven surfaces. There is however a step-free route from the Palace Gardens to Palace Courtyard – please ask the stewards for assistance with this route.
Within Base Court, there are 6 wheelchair spaces and 6 complimentary companion seats per concert on the wheelchair platform.
In addition, accessibility requirements can be accommodated on the flat areas of the auditorium in specific locations within Blocks B, C & D. Spaces are limited, subject to availability and booked in advance on a first come first serve basis. (Please Note: Your view may be restricted as guests are prohibited from standing)
We offer a companion ticket for disabled visitors who require assistance. This is a free ticket for a partner, accompanying friend or personal assistant (PA). Companion tickets, with exclusion of the wheelchair platform, are subject to availability.
A companion ticket can also be booked online at the same time as an accessible ticket. Accessible customers are required to accept a disclaimer that advises supporting documentation may need to be presented at the event.

In order to comply with emergency evacuation procedures please be aware that wheelchair users who book non-dedicated wheelchair space might be asked to leave their wheelchairs outside the Palace Courtyard.
