Visitors on the Autistic Spectrum

Entry Queues

Entry to Ascott House and Gardens is relatively quick. We recommend always pre-booking your tickets as this makes your entry to the Estate as fast and simple as possible to avoid queuing in busy periods.

Quiet Areas

Ascott Gardens has around 30 acres of formal and natural land. We have many areas, especially in the lower parts of the gardens, which can be very quiet and where families are able to rest, picnic and explore.

The area to the right of the driveway to the House is also quiet and spacious.

You won't see many dogs on your visit as only assistance dogs are allowed in the gardens.

If you need any support during the day, please don't hesitate to ask a member of staff (in blue or green uniform).

High Sensory Areas

The following areas are specifically sensory high:

  • The Tea Room - the coffee machines can be very loud when in use and the Tea Room can be very busy
  • The toilets - hand dryers are installed in the toilets and can be loud in the small space
