Practical information

Visual story

We have prepared a visual story to help children understand what to expect when they visit. It might also help children feel less anxious in a new and unfamiliar space.

Arriving by bicycle or car

  • Cycle racks are located near the rear entrance.
  • The street is in a controlled parking zone. Restrictions apply 9am to 6.30pm Monday-Friday and 9.30am to 1.30pm on Saturdays. You can park on the street outside of these hours.
  • We can sometimes accommodate a car in our driveway. Please contact us in advance to arrange this.

Step-free access

Entry to the museum is via the back garden, however there is a step from the garden to the house.

Step-free access is via the front door, just ring the doorbell and our Front of House team will let you through.

We regret that there is currently no step-free access to the first floor of the house.


Buggy parking

Buggies can be parked:

  • In the downstairs hall of the house
  • Outside in the garden (weather permitting).

Please note that there is direct access to the garden from the street, so we advise you to keep valuables with you.


Toilet facilities

The downstairs unisex toilet is equipped with a changing table.

We regret that we do not currently have a Changing Places or accessible toilet.

The nearest accessible toilet is in the O2 Centre on Finchley Road.


Breastfeeding welcome

Breastfeeding is welcome anywhere in the house. If you need a private space to breast feed, please ask a member of staff and we will do our best to accommodate you.


Eating and drinking

We do not have a café, but families are welcome to have a picnic in our garden in the summer months (weather permitting).

Food can be consumed inside the house, but indoor seating is limited. Please do not bring any food or drinks into the study.

Tea and coffee can be purchased in the shop.

A nearby family-friendly café nearby is Oliver’s Village Café in Belsize Village, roughly 10 minutes’ walk.


Sensory bags

A sensory bag is available for visitors with sensory needs. Please ask a member of our team.


Families with additional needs

Please feel free to get in touch with our Front of House team if there’s anything we can do to make your visit easier.
