Disabled parking
We have a limited number of disabled parking spaces available. These spaces give level access to the basement floor. From this level, every floor of the building is accessible by a lift. These parking spaces are in a private car park. If you are require access to a parking space, please call 0115 837 24 26 and someone will be able to assist you.

The ramp leading down to the basement car park is not ADA compliant, therefore this entrance may not be suitable for those without a vehicle.

The closest entrance to Soft Estate, our basement entrance is wheelchair accessible and offers wide access. To gain access via this entrance, please call 0115 837 24 26 and request a member of staff who will be able to welcome and assist you.

BACKLIT  Entrance
BACKLIT’s main entrance is situated on the corner of Ashley Street and Alfred Street South. There are two steps leading up to the main entrance which has double doors offering wide access. If you are unable to climb stairs, you will need to access the building from the BASEMENT entrance. 

Access within the building
Once you are inside the building, each floor can be accessed by wide stairs or by a lift.

All of our toilets are gender neutral. Unfortunately, none of our toilets have very wide access doors and therefore it is not currently possible to fit a wheelchair into any of our toilets.

Large Font
For our main exhibitions, a large font guide is available upon request.

Guide dogs are welcome.

To discuss any access requirements ahead of your visit please email info@backlit.org.uk or call 0115 837 24 26 and we’ll be more than happy to help.

*We are realise that there is more work to do to make our space as accessible as possible and we continue to look into solutions. If you would like to get involved in this process or have any advice to offer, please feel free to email us.
