Avington House is a Grade 1 listed building - there are no lifts. Wheelchair users are restricted to the ground floor rooms only, with ramps to access the short steps into the Library. If you are at all able to walk, the stairs to the Ballroom and Red Drawing Room on the first floor are quite shallow and wide. Alternatively, you can browse through their Guide Book!
