As most of the artworks are located in natural woodland areas, some of the paths can be uneven underfoot. However, unless there are extreme weather conditions, the paths are more than sufficient for most buggies and outdoor wheelchairs. All gallery spaces are also accessible for buggies and wheelchairs via ramps.

 

Jupiter Artland is open to the public every day from 18 May to 29 September, when visitors are encouraged to explore the Artland and discover the artworks at their own pace
