The Old Royal Naval College Chapel:

The Old Royal Naval College (ORNC) is a scheduled ancient monument and Grade 1 listed, but we aim to make the site accessible to as many visitors as possible.

There are 11 steps to climb from College Way (which runs east to west through the site) to Upper Grand Square where the main entrance to The Chapel is situated. There is also a step-free route to The Chapel.

Once at The Chapel, a Stairmate machine is used, by trained staff, to carry wheelchair users from the vestibule to the main body of the Chapel (which is 14 steps up). The maximum weight the Stairmate can hold is 200 kg. The maximum width of chair which will fit is 69.5cm (27″) measured hand rim to hand rim. Please note that most electric wheelchairs will exceed this weight and therefore the Chapel may not be accessible for electric wheelchair users. If you are able to transfer to our manual wheelchair, we can facilitate your Chapel visit in this way.

If you have any enquiries regarding access to the The Chapel, or would like to advise us of your visit to ensure a trained member of staff is on hand to welcome you, please call 020 8269 4799 or email
