  • There is regrettably no wheelchair access to Dr Johnson's House. A DVD is available to borrow. Please contact us for more information. Alternatively you can view a virtual tour of the House with the curator.

  • There are many steps at Dr Johnson's House. There are seven steps to access the entrance (with a handrail). The building is a four-storey townhouse with a staircase between each floor. There are handrails on each side of the staircase and visitor seating in every room. Visitors who are unable to manage the stairs can use the audio-visual guide free of charge.

  • For more information about our commitment to providing the widest possible access, please refer to our Access Policy (.pdf)
