We have two unisex disabled toilets inside the palace (although one is right next to the entrance to the Fountain Ladies toilets and shares the same lobby), two in the gardens and one in the Tiltyard Cafe. Baby changing units are in the Mens Toilets by Base Court and in the Tiltyard Cafe and there is a Mother and Baby room off Base Court Ladies which contains changing mats and bottle warmers. We don't have any toddler loo seats or child-sized toilets.

There are bottle warmers in the Mother and Baby Room off Base Court and the restaurant staff are more than happy to provide hot water so that a bottle can be warmed in the catering areas.
