On-Site Parking (disabled visitors only)

Camden Art Centre has one parking space prioritised for blue badge holders, which is located beside the level access entrance and wide enough to accommodate a minibus. Whilst it is not possible to reserve a space, it is recommended that visitors call ahead if they intend to use the space and every effort will be made to accommodate this.

Camden Art Centre has both stepped and level entrances.

The main stepped access is located on the corner of Finchley Road and Arkwright Road

The level access is located 10 metres up Arkwright Road on the left side. This entrance is also fitted with push-button automatic doors.

If you are visiting as part of a group with access needs and would benefit from access to a breakout space, please call reception ahead of your visit.

All our exhibitions are free. For our paid events, disabled people are eligible for a concession rate ticket and one free ticket for a care support worker. To book, please contact the shop.

Many of the pavements (including directly outside the Centre) are fitted with dropped kerb crossing.

Pedestrian crossing lights are fitted on Finchley Road directly outside the Centre.

Camden Art Centre is split across two floors and there is a lift which serves both. The lift is situated on the ground floor, just beyond the Shop near the main entrance to the Centre.

All spaces are wheelchair accessible except for the upper level of the Garden.

Camden Art Centre has one accessible toilet, situated on the ground floor. It is fitted with support handrails and an alarm cord. The toilet is also fitted with an electronically operated change bed and a mobile hoist and sling to assist with lifting.

Baby change facilities are available on the ground floor of the Centre.

A wheelchair is available to borrow on request at the Shop.
Portable folding stools are also available to borrow. These are located adjacent to the lift on the ground floor, or on request from a member of the front of house team.

Guide dogs, hearing and registered assistance dogs are welcome at the Centre. Staff can provide a bowl of water if needed. If you want to bring your guide or hearing dog to an event at the Centre, please call +44 (0)20 7472 5500 in advance to reserve a seat next to an aisle.
