Accessibility
  • Emery Walker's House is a Grade II* listed, tall, terraced 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.
     

  • Due to the constraints of space, the high density of furniture and precious objects, and to help conserve the fragile collections, the house is unsuitable for young children.

  • For those unable to access the house we offer a virtual tour - just click on the heading marked VIRTUAL TOUR below the logo on the top of this page.

 

Photography

Unfortunately, for conservation reasons, photography is not allowed inside the house. A selection of postcards, greeting cards, books and gifts can be purchased after the tour.
