Disabled Access at Bedgebury Pinetum

The terrain at Bedgebury does encompass some steep hills, although Dallimore Valley (from the car park to Marshal's Lake) is wheelchair accessible, as is most of the blue route forest path.

To help make Bedgebury accessible to all, we have a wheelchair which may be collected at the Information Office in the Visitor Centre and used on site. There is no charge for the chair, but donations to the charity are always welcome. For more information, or to reserve the chair, please call 01892 879820. The chair is lent to visitors on a first come, first served basis, and must be returned to the Information Office by 4.00pm on the day it is borrowed.

Bedgebury has a number of disabled bays in the car park. Normal admission charges apply.

The Friends' Concessionary Admission Scheme and Learning Bursary Scheme

The Friends of Bedgebury Pinetum is a charitable organisation that aims to promote tree-related engagement, research and learning at Bedgebury, one of the finest conifer collections in the world. We are therefore keen to encourage people to come to Bedgebury to learn about and engage with the Pinetum on all levels, but, in particular, we are keen to direct our support to those who might not be able to come without our help.

If Bedgebury's unique assets make a substantial difference to you, your family, your school or organisation, and you would find it difficult to visit without our support, please consider making an application to our Concessionary Admission Scheme. If you are a school, and you would like to come to Bedgebury to participate in a programme organised by the Forestry Commission's Learning Team, you might be eligible for support under our Learning Bursary Scheme.
