Induction Loop

An induction loop operates at the Welcome Desk and in Room 11 (the Lecture Room).

Quiet times

The Gallery is quietest on Sunday afternoons.

Room 18 on Level 3 is often a calm place and usually contains some chairs where you can rest.

Fire exits

In the event of an emergency, a loud fire alarm will sound and visitors will be asked to exit the Gallery using their nearest exit routes. These are clearly marked with illuminated green ‘running man’ signs. Staff will assist all visitors to leave the building promptly and safely.

There are evacuation points and chairs on all levels of the Gallery to aid disabled visitors and ensure they are safe.

What we're working on

We’re currently creating a new accessible guide to the Gallery which will be available at Reception and to download before your visit.
