HOW DO I FIND THE BUILDING?
We’re located in Granary Square and are accessible by public transport. The nearest station is King's Cross. Our building is shared with ArtFund and can be found in between Waitrose and the Central Saint Martin's building. Our public entrance is on the Waitrose side of the building.
A link to a downloadable pdf of visual directions from King's Cross station can be found at the bottom of this page.
No prior booking is needed. On average, visitors spend 40 minutes at Queer Britain.
Our building has step-free access. There is a ramp to access the galleries from the outside and a lift to access the Studio Space. If your wheelchair is wider than 89.5 cm please contact us.
We have a fully accessible gender neutral toilet on the first floor and a gender neutral Changing Places Toilet on the lower ground floor, accessible via lift or stairs. Ask a member of staff if you need to access the Changing Places Toilet during opening hours.
Service, assistance and emotional support animals are allowed in the building. All assistance animals must have a valid certificate displayed. No other animals are allowed in our building.
BLUE BADGE PARKING
Our building surroundings are pedestrianised so doesn’t have parking space. These are the closest blue badge parking spaces in the area:
2 Wharf Road (2 min walk)
7 Lewis Cubitt Walk (5 min walk)
2 Beaconsfield St (7 min walk)
1 Handyside St (8 min walk)
More information on where to find blue badge parking here.
LARGE PRINT GUIDES
A large print guide is available at the shop by request. We are developing a new version that will be available in the gallery space and aim to have it installed in the next few months.
All the audiovisual content in the galleries is subtitled. We are working to make transcripts available within the new Large Print Guides.
We are working to have an audio description offer in place and to train our Welcome Team in audio description. We will make an announcement once this is in place and thank you for your patience.
Breastfeeding is allowed in any area of the museum. Bottle feeding is allowed in any area of the building except from the main gallery, please ask a member of staff if you need assistance. There is a baby-changing facility in the ground floor toilet.
Due to the small footprint of the building we cannot normally offer a prayer space. There is a link to Prayer Rooms in the area here. If you need assistance with this please ask a member of staff.
The wellbeing of our staff, volunteers, and visitors is paramount to us at Queer Britain. Some of the content in our exhibition may be emotional. Feel free to talk with a staff member if you would like to. Any instance of harmful behaviour or speech will not be tolerated. We reserve the absolute right of admission and can remove individuals if felt necessary for the safety of others. We are in direct contact with King’s Cross Estate Security.
If you have any questions or requests please feel free to email: email@example.com
WE HAVE PROVIDED THE CURRENT INFORMATION ON THE ACCESSIBILITY OF OUR SPACES IN THIS SECTION. WE ARE WORKING ON FURTHER DEVELOPING ACCESS, BUT AS WE ARE A YOUNG MUSEUM THIS WILL TAKE SOME TIME. WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING.
