Some wheelchair accessible venues in London for meetings and events

If you want to find an accessible venue in London, Access Able (previously Disabled Go) is a good place to start.  They do fairly comprehensive audits of particular venues, and you can search by location, type and name of venue (type the name of the venue in the box labelled ‘I’m looking for…’) and filter by accessibility requirement, venue type and distance. Another way is to type that venue and Access Able into a search engine and you will find the venue’s audit if they have done one.

Here I will collect a list of accessible venmeeting-space-office-reception-1058604ues. However, not all may have had a full access audit so it is advisable always to check with the venue first, or look to see if there is an Access Able audit.

If you have any comments or information to add, please contact us. It would be great to keep this list expanding – both in and outside London!

If you would like to do your own audit you could use the template developed by the Radical Mapping Project Vancouver (please credit them).

Sisters of Frida have also produced a toolkit for practical, physical access to events.

  • New Cross Gate Trust – wheelchair accessible and free for community groups to use some evenings.
  • Deptford Lounge – not free but is wheelchair accessible.
  • The Café at The Albany (for smaller meetings) – they don’t make you buy anything and it is wheelchair accessible, although not private obviously as it’s a public café.
  • Peckham Library – not free but is wheelchair accessible.
  • Bermondsey Village Hall – not free but wheelchair accessible.

Thank you to Sisters Uncut for providing some venues that they use.
