Wheelchair users can also access the first five rooms on the State Room Tour including the spectacular Kings Hall. There is an audio visual presentation showing the areas they are unable to reach in a wheelchair. The cafeteria is up steps but there is a wooden chalet that is fully accessible and if a member of the party places and order in the café then staff will bring it down to the chalet.
