British Sign Language (BSL)
A number of our Visitor Assistants are trained to British Sign Language Level 1 standard. British Sign Language supported and subtitled film and touchscreens are available at selected points within the permanent galleries across all our sites.
Pre-booked groups visiting the Planetarium, accompanied by a British Sign Language interpreter, can request a low level spotlight during the screening to allow for interpretation. Please contact our Bookings team for further information:

Hearing loops are fitted at all site information desks and at key locations across the sites. Unfortunately, it has not been possible to install a loop system inside Cutty Sark due to interference caused by the original wrought iron structure, but subtitles are included in all films with audio soundtrack. Hearing dogs and assistance dogs are welcome across all sites.
