We aim to make Queenswood as accessible as possible to as many visitors as possible. Accessible facilities are detailed below but we would be keen to hear of other facilities or improvements you would like to see on the site. Please get in touch using the button below.
Accessibility at Queenswood
There are a number of easy access paths with hard surfaces and no steps within the Arboretum. So, those with limited mobility or using electric mobility vehicles (EMVs) can enjoy a circular walk.
Please help us raise funds to buy a new electric mobility vehicle to improve accessibility for visitors to Queenswood by donating here.
The car park includes a limited number of spaces reserved for Blue Badge holders. If these are full, Blue Badge holders may also park for free in any parking space. However, you MUST register on arrival at the Visitor Centre (open daily between 10:30-3:30pm) in order to park for free. If you visit outside of these times and don’t hold an annual pass, then you will need to pay for your parking at the ticket machines just before you leave.
Alternatively, why not register for up to a year for freedom to visit at any time without charge. This is valid for Herefordshire Council Blue Badge holders only and is available from the Visitor Centre.
Full Visitor Centre opening times:
10am-4pm: Every day during Herefordshire school holidays, at weekends and on bank holidays
10:30-3:30pm: On weekdays outside of Herefordshire school holidays
Please help us raise funds to buy a new electric mobility vehicle for use by visitors to Queenswood, by donating here.
Our TGA Supersport Mobility Scooter is available to hire for 1-2 hours at a time in return for a £5 donation.
The scooter’s three wheel styling helps to provide good levels of comfort, stability and manoeuvrability. It is fitted with easy to operate levers and switches to control your speed and direction. And the automatic brake system slows the scooter down to a controlled stop once you let go of the operating lever. The arms of the seat lift up and the handlebars can be quickly and easily adjusted in both height and angle.
If you would like to book our scooter, please call the Visitor Centre on 01432 530088 between the times below, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or take a chance and pop in to see us on the day!

Please help us raise funds to buy a new electric mobility vehicle so that we can ensure future visitors with limited mobility can get out into nature and explore the Arboretum by donating here. Thank you for your support!
