We are committed to making your visit to Summerhall an enjoyable experience and we are working to make our venue as accessible as possible. The building is B-listed and is over one hundred years old and not all of our spaces are fully accessible. Our step free access is through the side entrance on Summerhall Square. The Royal Dick Bar and Restaurant is situated to your right as you come in (with a ramp at the rear of the bar) and there is a ramp directly ahead of you that leads to the Reception, Box Office, Shop and Café. We have lift access to some of the First Floor spaces. Further information about individual spaces and shows can be obtained from the Box Office.
