Easy access to historic buildings

These guidelines focus on physical access issues; other issues such as lighting, tone, colour contrast and signing are touched upon. The guidance also focuses on the challenges and constraints posed by buildings whose function is not directly related to their historic status – shops, offices and civic buildings – rather than those preserved and opened to the public purely as historic attractions.
