Getting Around the QEII Centre
There is a ramp from the forecourt which leads to the QEII Centre front doors and is wide enough for easy wheelchair access. In addition to this, a DDA compliant registration point is also available to wheelchair delegates. All of the meeting and conference rooms have step-free access via corridors wide enough to easily manoeuvre a wheelchair.
The venue has nine passenger lifts, all of which can accommodate a wheelchair. One of these 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. The venue can fit a wheelchair ramp to the stage in larger meeting areas, or arrange a portable wheelchair lift to provide access to the stage in smaller meeting rooms.
Disabled Toilet Facilities
There are accessible toilet facilities throughout the QEII Centre. These are equipped with emergency alarms and can be accessed from all rooms by using lifts where necessary.
Assistance and Guide Dogs
You are welcome to bring your guide dog, hearing dog or other assistance dog into the QEII Centre.
Most rooms have permanent induction loops for the audio impaired, 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 contact us to arrange this for you.
Personal Evacuation Plans
We must 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 4053 to agree a mutually convenient personal evacuation plan.
