Marks Hall offers visitors a volunteer-driven buggy service.

The route passes the former mansion and church sites with views of the Arboretum, wonderful vistas across the lakes and through the woodlands.

Whilst the buggy is unable to drive into the Walled Garden it can take passengers up to the gates, where wheelchair access is possible in Spring, Summer and Autumn. Benches are located throughout the gardens.

We have one volunteer driven golf buggy and there is a charge for the service to cover operational costs.

Unfortunately our buggies are not adapted for visitors who are unable to move from their wheelchair unaided. Staff and volunteers are always on hand to offer support to ensure the requirements of all visitors are catered for, however, we do not have a hoist. Passengers will either be required to lift themselves into the vehicle or be accompanied by someone who is able to provide them with the assistance they need.
