Accessibility at the Business Design Centre

If you arrive by car, there are 8 dedicated parking spaces for blue badge holders at the BDC London on-site car park. There is a passenger lift to street level or the BDC forecourt, or you can take the 17-step pedestrian staircase.

The route from the car park to the building is well-lit and clearly marked. The surface is firm. There are two staircases between street level and the building (5 and 12 steps respectively, all with handrails). There is also a ramp on the forecourt.

If someone is dropping you off in a vehicle, please contact the BDC London front of house team so they can give you acess to the forecourt through their security point. Please call 0207 288 6475.

If you are coming by train, the nearest step-free station is Kings Cross and St Pancras International, which is easily reachable via bus or taxi. All levels of the venue are accessible via passenger lifts, with low-reach buttons, braille, back mirrors and distress alarms. Every staircase in the BDC has handrails. All publicly-accessible areas of the venue are well-lit.

We have a limited number of wheelchairs available for hire to visitors. Please call the concierge team on 0207 288 6475 to book your wheelchair. Please bring proof of identification to confirm your booking.
