Accessibility and Facilities


Emery Walker's House is a tall, terraced Georgian house with narrow stairs between the three floors open to the public, as well as steps to the rear garden (46 steps in total). We regret that wheelchair or step free access is not possible.


Lighting levels are low throughout the building.


There is no accessible WC.


Due to the constraints of space, and the high density of furniture and other precious objects, the house is unsuitable for young children.


There is a small shop within the house's reception, selling a small range of postcards and gifts.


Refreshments are not available within the house but there are several options within walking distance.


Photography
Unfortunately, due to copyright issues and the fragile nature of the building, photography is not permitted within the house.
Storage and Personal Property
We regret that backpacks, wheeled bags and other large items must be left in the reception area, though please note that this is at the owners' risk. Please do not chain bicycles to the railings at the front of the house as this obstructs the narrow pavement.
