BOM’s visitor guidance (for COVID-19)

If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 (a new cough, loss of taste or smell or a high temperature) please stay at home and visit another time.

You are welcome to stay as long as you like. Above all, enjoy your visit!

Facilities / Accessibility 

We have an accessible toilet with baby changing facilities on the ground floor and two toilets on the first floor. All of our toilets are gender neutral.

All three floors can be accessed via stairs and a lift. (please note, large scooters do not fit inside our lift but we do have a wheelchair that can be used in these cases.)

We have lots of rooms at BOM, let us know if you’d like to reserve a room for prayer, breastfeeding (although you can breastfeed anywhere you like at BOM) and we’ll make sure you have a lovely cosy space to use.

Our main entrance has no step access (ramped) and our cafe entrance is step only access.

The main entrance is 96cm wide with capability to widen to 137cm.

There is a bike rack in our Cafe (although we are not responsible for any bikes left here)

Our Cafe is dog friendly as long as dogs (and owners) are well behaved!

We’d love to hear from you

Email or social media is the best way to catch us (unless you’re trying to contact the Cafe). We’re often delivering outreach and meeting amazing artists, so you’ll probably get a quicker response if you send us a message rather than phone.
