Accessibility

We try to make the tall ships as accessible as possible for people with all disabilities. Each wristband allows for a Carer to go free.

If you have a specific disability that you require any help with, please get in touch at: info@marketinggloucester.co.uk

We are delighted to welcome the Willow Trust to this year’s festival which has fully accessible boats, please visit their website for more information.

Please see below for a brief guide on the information we have regarding your needs.

 

Entrance to the Tall Ships

  • Kimbrose Triangle
  • Southgate Moorings
  • Peel Centre

It might be advisable to pre-collect your wrist bands from the Gloucester Tourist Information Centre. These are available to collect from May. While there is queue-jump for prepaid tickets, this should help make your entry into the event much easier.

Toilets

There are x4 toilet locations around the Tall Ships event, these all have accessible disabled toilets. There are also disabled toilets located in the Gloucester Quays Outlet Shopping Centre.
