It couldn’t be simpler for people with special requirements to visit us.

The centre is all on one level and main entrances are fitted with automated door opening controls at wheelchair height.

Parking is also convenient, with multiple disabled bays on the ground floor, the same level as the shops, with large, easy to operate lifts to other parking levels.

The bus station is immediately adjacent to the centre and, again, on the same level as all our shops and facilities.

There are no ramps or stairs for you to negotiate anywhere!


Our two dedicated, unisex disabled toilets can be found near the bus stop and Palmerston Road entrances and are opened with your Radar key. If you’ve forgotten your key, don’t worry, press the button on the wall and a member of our team will be with you shortly to unlock them.


If you need to use a wheelchair or mobility scooter but don’t have one, Boscombe Shopmobility can help.

Located in our car park, next to our disabled parking bays and entrance to the shopping centre, Shopmobility can provide you with a powered scooter or wheelchair, as well as manual wheelchair, regardless of whether you are young or old and if your mobility impairment is temporary or permanent.

Shopmobility is open Monday to Saturday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Visitors pay a fee of £4 per visit. Annual membership is available at £10.50, with members enjoying a reduced fee of £2.50 per visit.

Boscombe Shopmobility is part of sedcat (South East Dorset Community Accessible Transport), a registered charity. For more information, call 01202 598295 or visit
