Accessibility

St Olave's Church can be accessed with a wheelchair. There are accessible toilets available at the back of the church. Please email info@academyofstolaves.org.uk if you wish to reserve a wheelchair space. Due to the fixed pews, although the church is accessible, wheelchair users and their companions will be placed near the back of the church. The sound from the back is well balanced but it may be difficult to have a good view of the orchestra. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
