Accessible toilet facilities
We have multiple accessible toilets to make your experience at the centre hassle-free. You can find these on the lower ground mall opposite Boots and on the dining terrace. Use your radar key to use the accessible toilets or ask a member of our team. We also have a Changing Places facility which is located on the dining terrace. Baby changing is located on the lower ground and the dining terrace.
We have 49 spaces reserved especially for disabled shoppers spread over both floors of our multi-storey car park. These are adjacent to the welcome halls to make accessibility as easy as possible. Please ensure you have a valid blue badge on display when parking in one of our accessible spaces and note that normal parking charges apply.
Like most public buildings, Chantry Place welcomes assistance dogs in the centre. If your dog does not wear a high-vis jacket or harness, it is sometimes difficult for our staff to recognise the difference between assistance dogs and pets, which are not allowed in our centres. To ensure a smooth shopping trip and make it easier for our staff to identify assistance dogs, we recommend you ask a member of our team for a sunflower-design lead sleeve for your dog. This lead sleeve simply slides over your dog’s lead and enables our staff to identify your dog as an assistance dog whilst you are shopping with us. Shoppers are invited to keep this lead sleeve and use it whenever they are in the centre.
Chantry Place only allows assistance dogs in the shopping centre. However, we do allow people to use the car park and take their dog up with them in the lift to Upper Ground Mall, exiting immediately onto Chantry Road (opposite the Assembly House and theatre).
Autism friendly hours
With effect from Monday 2nd August 2021, our autism friendly trading hours will return every Monday between 4pm and 6pm for all visitors.
During this time, noise in the Centre will be kept to a minimum with music turned down, lights dimmed and sensory stimulation reduced for any events and demos in the Centre. Only essential and urgent announcements will be broadcast.
