The National Poetry Library welcomes everyone and works hard to ensure our facilities are accessible to all.
We have excellent public transport links with step-free access. A drop-off point at Royal Festival Hall has been created for visitors who are unable to walk long distances. For level access to the Royal Festival Hall from the Queen Elizabeth Hall Slip Road off Belvedere Road, please use the Southbank Centre Square Doors. The JCB Glass Lift is situated at this entrance and will take you to the National Poetry Library on Level 5.
We have an extensive collection of books in Braille and audiobooks
Southbank Centre, where the National Poetry Library is based, is proud to have been awarded Gold by Attitude is Everything on their Charter for Best Practice for arts venues providing access for Deaf and disabled people. All the cafes, bars and restaurants across the Southbank Centre site are accessible.
