Accessibility at Geevor
It is really important to us that Geevor has something for everyone whatever their access requirements. We want to give you as much information as possible about the practicalities of visiting the site before you arrive.
For visitors arriving by car, we have blue badge parking immediately in front of the Museum. Follow the signs from the entrance gate to find our accessible parking.
There are plenty of toilets on the site, including three accessible toilets and baby changing facilities, with accessible lifts in the Hard Rock museum and between the shop and cafe.
Our staff have received deaf and disability awareness training and are very keen to help visitors get the most from our site.
In More Detail
Our easy read and large print guide and map are available from reception. Lots of people find them useful.
Any personal assistants attending the site with you will be admitted free of charge.
Limited mobility/ short visit
For those with limited mobility or who want a shorter visit, our Hard Rock Museum, housed in a former workshop building, is Geevor in a nutshell and has been designed to be a complete experience in itself. It contains an accessible lift, accessible toilet, plenty of room to manoeuvre around the exhibits, lots of hands on activities and a film. There is a reduced ticket price for this option.
Shop and café
Our café has huge windows with a fabulous view over the site taking in a wide panorama of The Tin Coast. It is a great place for those who cannot access the rest of the site to sit and take in the atmosphere. Our shop and café has parking immediately outside. It has an accessible toilet and lift platform. The button for the lift platform is situated outside of it, so requires the assistance of an additional person. We can arrange alternative access to the café for those with long wheelchairs. Please talk to a member of staff.
We welcome dogs across our entire site except in the café complex and underground. Assistance dogs are welcome everywhere. Drinking water for dogs is provided outside reception, on the tin floors and outside the café and shop.
Accessible parking is available directly outside the main reception entrance.
There are 3 accessible toilets on site, in the reception building, car park and Hard Rock Museum.
Geevor is an environment that is experienced through all the senses. Films with audio that give information about the heritage play in The Hard Rock Museum Cinema and Tin Floors. A large print guide and map are available from reception. There are large print signs on displays around the site.

Geevor VR Tour
Working with Soundview Media and Heritage Ability, we have created an accessible VR tour of Geevor that gives access to parts of the eighteenth century mine-workings, the mill, and a bird's eye view of our breath-taking coastline. The VR Tour allows visitors who may once have been unable to access all of Geevor the chance to explore from a unique perspective.
