The building Housmans occupies was built in the late 1800s and is not ideal in terms of accesibilty. The main floor of Housmans has level access from the street. There are two steps leading to the back section of the shop, but we do have a ramp available, Housmans staff are happy to provide whatever help they can to anyone who has difficulty negotiating the steps.

Our second-hand basement and 'Vaults' area are located downstairs, and due to the nature of the building unfortunately there is no step free access.

The toilet is only accessible by climbing 4 steps. We have negotiated with our current nieghbours, Piebury Corner, that all Housmans visitors can use their wheelchair accessible toilet.

Please get in touch if you have any questions about shop accessibility and we will do our best to help.
