Shugborough welcomes all visitors and works hard to provide access to as many people as possible.
The estate is car free which offers safe walking and wheelchair routes across the estate. The paths throughout Shugborough feature lots of benches, shelters and adapted picnic tables for everyone to enjoy.
Our Shuttle transport is superbly equipped to transport three wheelchair users, and it runs throughout the day from various shuttle stops.
