Wheelchair access

We regret to inform you that, due to the age of the building, St. Michael’s is only partially accessible to wheelchairs. The church interior and crypt are accessible to wheelchairs, whilst the tower can only be reached via steps.

  • Portal 7 features a wheelchair ramp for access to the chapel, which offers a peaceful location for silent prayer.
  • Portal 10 provides wheelchair access to the church. The door can be opened by pressing a button. Access is level with the ground.
  • The crypt can be accessed via flush thresholds in the public toilets located on the southern side of the church. Access is available whenever the public toilets are open – otherwise, please use the doorbell marked with a wheelchair symbol.
  • 52 steps lead to the tower lift. Whilst wheelchair users receive discounted admission, their attendants who help them over the steps have free admission.
