Visitor centre and café
Our café, information point and gift shop are on the ground floor of the visitor centre accessed through manual double-opening doors. Seating is available both inside the visitor centre for customers using the café, as well as at picnic benches in the café garden that are accessible to wheelchair users.
We have a Changing Places toilet located next to the toilet block, adjacent to the visitor centre. This can be opened with a RADAR key.
We also have one unisex accessible toilet adjacent to the main visitor centre. These facilities can be reached via easy access pathways and do not require a RADAR Key.
Toilet facilities are available at all times when the car park is open to visitors, even if the café and shop are closed.
Our Orchid Room is on the ground floor of the visitor centre and is available for hire on weekdays and weekends. The Orchid Room has its own male and female toilets which are not accessible to wheelchair users, but we do have accessible and Changing Places toilets nearby.
Mobility scooter hire
We have Tramper mobility scooters available for hire. Our Trampers are rough terrain mobility vehicles that can help you explore more of the park.
Before hiring a Tramper for the first time, you will need to complete a 25 minute practical induction session. To pre-book your training session call 03000 41 47 47. You must be able to get on and off the Tramper unaided, as our staff are not trained to help with this.
Trampers cost £2 for a 2 hour session. To book call 03000 41 47 47.
There are 5 hard standing allocated disabled spaces in the main car park next to the visitor centre. The visitor centre entrance is approximately 10 metres away and the main entrance is easily accessible. There are an additional 100 car park spaces on plastic grids which may be difficult for a wheelchair to cross.
If you are a Blue Badge holder, you can purchase an annual season ticket in advance of your visit for a discounted cost of £8. The annual season ticket gives you access to all of our country park car parks free of charge during the year.
To purchase your season ticket call 03000 41 72 72, and have your Blue Badge number and credit or debit card handy for reference.
There is a riverside path that runs along the river Darent between Lullingstone Country Park and Lullingstone Castle which takes around 20 minutes. The path is mainly unsurfaced but reasonably flat, which makes access good during the spring, summer and autumn months, but it may become muddy during the winter.
