Ticketing and accessibility


When booking exhibition tickets, you must choose a specific date and time slot for entry. If you arrive outside your 30 minute time slot, please visit the box office and talk to our staff. Although we can’t guarantee entry, we will do our best to be accommodating.

Exhibition tickets cost:

  • £10 standard
  • £8 concession (over 60; unemployed; student with NUS card; registered disabled)
  • Free (under 18; King’s staff, students and alumni; The National Archives’ staff; carer to accompany registered disabled)

If you are entitled to free tickets, you must bring the relevant ID with you.

Students will need a valid NUS card or university photo ID card. Students at King’s College London will need their King’s student ID card.

Registered disabled people should bring an award letter from the Department of Work and Pensions showing eligibility for disability benefits, a blue badge or disabled person’s bus pass.

Under 18s and over 60s should bring proof of age, which could include passport, proof of age card, Zip Oyster photocard or Freedom pass, or any other photo ID stating date of birth.

Staff from King’s or The National Archives will need to bring staff ID cards.

Unemployed people should bring an ES40/My Work Plan booklet, or a letter from the DWP dated within the last three months.

King’s alumni do not need to bring proof of ID, as we will check your details against the alumni register. Please ensure you book in your name.


The exhibition is wheelchair accessible. On arrival at Somerset House, enter the East Wing via the ramp into Fernandez & Wells cafe. Continue to the back of the cafe and through a set of double-doors into a corridor- the exhibition box office is ahead of you. Access to the gallery is via a lift.

One wheelchair user ticket is available for each half-hour slot to ensure safe evacuation in case of an emergency. If your group includes more than one wheelchair user, please book in consecutive timeslots and contact us to explain. We’ll endeavor to admit you together if possible.

Disabled parking can be arranged for blue badge holders. Please phone 0207 848 5960 (Mon-Fri) at least 48 hours before your visit, stating your visit time, name and number plate of the vehicle. You will be required to display your blue badge at all times.

Visitors who are registered disabled may bring one carer with them, free of charge. Please book the following: ‘Concession (reg disabled)’ + ‘Free (carer,with reg disabled)’.
