All of our buildings can be accessed by wheelchair, though some have features which are only accessible by stair. As far as possible we have tried to provide an alternative way of experiencing these facilities. An example of this would be the Winding House where stairs limit access but where there is a super sound and video experience at ground level and an opportunity to see the machinery from below.

We have wheelchairs on site that can be pre-booked for your visit.

All of the learning team are experienced and trained at working with children with special educational and behavioural needs.

If you want to discuss support please contact a member of our team.

We encourage schools to do their own risk assessment before a visit but we provide a Hazards List in the teachers’ information pack which can be downloaded.

Woodhorn has an excellent gift shop, well stocked with lots of choice for all budgets.

If you let us know that you’d like to visit the shop, we’ll make sure there’s time during lunch or at the end of the visit.

We have PLI up to £5 million. If you require evidence of our policies, insurance and safety and welfare procedures please get in touch.

We have coach parking for up to 8 coaches providing schools with a safe place to get on and off the coach.
