Access in and around Brockwell Park
The show takes place in Brockwell Park, which recently just retained its Green Flag Award. Good pathways and road systems run throughout that makes it easily accessible for wheelchair users to get around. However, many of the activities and stages are situated on the grass fields of the park.
Our DDA compliant disabled toilets meet all legislative requirements for all our visitors requiring wheelchair accessible loos or access to baby changing facilities.
We have 16 of these wheelchair accessible toilets located evenly across the show site with one located at each medical point, as well as the Main Stage viewing platform. Stewards and/or medical staff are on hand at each point with radar keys/fobs to assist you.
The door width of each toilet is suitable for wheelchair access (2ft 9″ x 6ft 7″ / 0.84m x 1.9m) and each toilet comes with a handrail plus an easy locking rotary door latch indicator system.
All assistance dogs are very much welcome at the show including Hearing dogs, Canine Partners, Dogs for the Disabled and Guide Dogs.
We do ask you to keep them on a lead at all times. Please consider the crowds and loud noises as this can have a negative impact on animals. Please be considerate and keep your dog away from child play areas and food traders, as well as disposing of any fouling promptly and appropriately.
Blue Badge Parking
Accessible parking is available on both days and is free of charge for Blue Badge holders only.
There is no public car park, so friends and/or family arriving in separate vehicles will not be able to use this car park.
Blue Badge holders are required to apply online in advance for a parking pass. Passes are limited and issued on a first come, first served basis.
Local public transport
Underground – Brixton.
Brockwell Park approximately 1 mile away from Brixton Underground Station. Visitors can travel by train from the nearby Brixton Rail Station to Herne Hill, which is a 2 minute train journey. There are also several bus routes from the underground station to outside of the park.
Until September 2018, there will be no step-free access at Brixton station while both lifts are being replaced. The station will have escalator access, but for step-free access to/from the Victoria line please use Vauxhall station.
National Rail – Herne Hill & Tulse Hill
Herne Hill is the closest station situated to the north-east of Brockwell Park. The station is approximately 200m away from the nearest park gate on Norwood Road. Staff help is available at this station with ramps for train access and step free access coverage.
Tulse Hill is also very close and situated to the south side of the park. This station is approximately 500m away from the nearest park gate on Norwood Road. Staff help is available at this station with ramps for train access. Step free access coverage is not available.

Mobiloo / Changing Places Toilet
Our fully attended onsite Mobiloo has all of the equipment you’d find in a Changing Places toilet; a height adjustable adult sized changing bench, an electronic hoist, as well as a toilet with grab rails either side and a sink.
Our attendant will be on hand to instruct you if you are unsure how the equipment works. It also means that the facility is used by those who need the space or equipment provided inside.
You can find Mobiloo at the main medical point in the centre of the show site close to Brockwell Hall.
There is an accessible viewing platform situated in our Main Stage field with prime site and sound of the stage to enjoy the wealth of entertainment on offer throughout the weekend. We also have 16 wheelchair accessible toilets located evenly across the show site with one of these located within the compound of the Main Stage viewing platform. There is also an accessible toilet situated at each of the 5 medical points across site.
Please be aware that access to the platform throughout both days is done so on a first come, first served basis and at times may become full. It is solely for the use of our disabled customers plus one other.
Access ramps will be in accordance with disability regulations.
Customers are advised that strobe and other lighting effects may be in use during performances.
There will be an access steward to assist you should you require help at any point.
