Car Parking

On-road car parking is available free of charge adjacent to the gallery. Public car parks with disabled bays are available within approximately 200 metres. The path from the car parks is level with dropped kerbs and a pelican crossing on the A5. Some of the on-road parking adjacent to the gallery is on a gradient, some is flat. The pathways around the gallery have dropped kerbs. Car park locations are marked on our Betws-y-Coed map.

 

Main Entrance

The main entrance is located at the front of the building, and access is via one step approximately 160mm high onto a large porch area. Double doors open inwards and outwards, and there is a large flat area on both sides of the doors. Although some wheelchair users may wish to negotiate this step with assistance, we recommend using the side entrance which is level.

 

Side Entrance (Disabled Entrance)

To the left of the main entrance is a 900mm wide path, signposted to disabled entrance. The entrance itself is a single door, 750mm wide, with a level area adjacent outside and the slightest of gradients inside.

 

Inside the Gallery

The whole gallery is on one level on the ground floor, with very large areas of unobstructed floorspace.  The narrowest passageway in the gallery is 1m wide. We have two sofas for any customers wishing to take the weight off their feet for a while.

 

Toilet Facilities

There are no public toilet facilities at the gallery. Nearest public toilets are at the previously mentioned car parks, approximately 200 metres away. Toilet locations are marked on our

Betws-y-Coed map, and in both locations disabled facilities are available.
