The QEII Centre is committed to providing access to all. Their staff are trained to provide assistance to visitors with limited mobility as well as other disabilities or needs. For full information venue accessibility visit the QE2 centre website.
Blue badge holders are permitted to park on the QEII Centre forecourt free of charge. This is subject to availability so please call ahead on +44 20 7798 4000 to enquire. Delegates arriving by taxis or alternative vehicles for mobility purposes can disembark on the forecourt.
- Public Transport
The nearest step-free tube station is Westminster, which is served by the Jubilee, District and Circle lines.
- Getting Around the Centre
There is a ramp from the forecourt which leads to the QEII Centre front doors and is wide enough for easy wheelchair access. All meeting and conference rooms have step-free access via corridors wide enough to easily manoeuvre a wheelchair.
There are nine passenger lifts, all of which can accommodate a wheelchair. One is a fireman’s lift that can be used in the event of an evacuation.
There is no fixed seating at the QEII Centre, therefore wheelchair spaces can be positioned anywhere in the meeting rooms.
- Disabled Toilet Facilities
Accessible toilet facilities are available throughout the QEII Centre.
- Assistance and Guide Dogs
The QEII centre welcomes your guide dog, hearing dog or other assistance dog.
- Induction Loops
Most of the rooms have permanent induction loops for those with hearing impairments, and in the remainder, they can be fitted by arrangement with QEII Live. If you are a delegate at an event requiring this facility, please include these in your event registration details and we will work to facilitate these as best we can.
- Personal Evacuation Plans
We have to ensure that everyone can be safely evacuated in the unlikely event of an emergency. If you feel that your disability could delay evacuation of yourself or others via the fire escape stairs, please contact the QEII Centre’s Fire Officer prior to your event on +44 20 7798 4000 to agree a mutually convenient personal evacuation plan.
