Disabled Access

Improvements to the accessibility of the Institut français’ 17 Queensberry Place site are ongoing. Access to the ground floor foyer/reception/bistrot is by ramp; however, the first floor (library and cinema) will temporarily not be accessible due to planned engineering works on the lift from 1 June to 30 Sept. We apologise for the inconvenience. We are equipped with audio induction loop systems (hearing loops) for the hard of hearing. Call our box office to discuss your needs: 020 7871 3515
