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. If you would like more information about the accessibility of particular shows, or if you wish to arrange a familiarisation tour of the venue prior to the festival, please do not hesitate to contact us by phone on 0845 874 3000 or by email on Our staff are here to help and if there is anything you need assistance with please do not hesitate to ask.
