Once parked up The Pavilion has a ramp next to the main steps making it very accessible to enter the building. Inside there is a large foyer waiting area with a accessible toilet but the only downside is the little coffee shop they have in the foyer has a step down into it making it unaccessible for anyone in a wheelchair but there is a bar located at the the back of the pavilion which is accessible for wheelchairs but please note that there is a large slope you have to go up/down to get to and from the bar which can be a bit of a struggle as its quite steep and has a thick carpet which makes getting a wheelchair across a bit harder but it is doable- again you need a bit of upper arm strength!
What we like about the pavilion is the location of the disabled seating, There is room for about 8 wheelchairs (split over both sides) and room for a carer/a friend etc and these spaces are very roomy which is really good but the best bit is....they are about 6 rows from the front! The views from these seats are really good! We've been to some venues where the disabled seating is up on the balcony with a safety rail blocking our view so its really refreshing to have decent seats!
We had such a good night out and really enjoyed The Bootleg Beatles - I highly recommend seeing them if they play near you! http://www.bootlegbeatles.com/ @BootlegBeatles
