Visiting the galleries

For detailed accessibility information for the Tate gallery you are visiting, go to the gallery page for Tate Britain, Tate Modern, Tate Liverpool + RIBA North or Tate St Ives.

Information includes accessible car parking, entrances, wheelchair and mobility scooter provision, facilities, quiet room, and assistance dogs.

We also have sections for autistic, blind and visually impaired, deaf and hearing-impaired and dyslexic visitors.

Visual stories

A visual story has photographs and information about what you can expect from a visit to any of our galleries.

Communication cards

Communication cards provide a means of visual, or nonverbal, communication.

You can use our communication cards to ask for directions to facilities in the gallery, including the toilet, café, seating, shop, quiet room, and exit.

Show one of the cards to a member of Tate staff and they will be happy to show you the way.

You can download these cards and print at home or save as a PDF on your portable device. There are two colour versions, with white or yellow background. Use whichever version you find easiest to read.

Tate is grateful to Anna Farley who initiated and championed the development of these communication cards. Anna is an autistic artist who makes work exploring her autism, UK disability culture and inclusion.

Access events

We have programmes for deaf and disabled people with various access requirements such as sign language, audio description, hearing support, additional seating and printed resources.

Audio description recordings

Listen to recorded spoken descriptions of artworks, delivered primarily for blind or partially sighted people. In these, details such as materials, colour, scale and composition are carefully explained.
