Most of the paths within the gardens are shallow pea gravel, though Breedon (compacted) gravel has now been laid from the Ticket Office to the Railway Shop. Both surfaces are easily negotiated by pushchairs, wheelchairs, rollators and walking sticks. A wheelchair map, available in the Ticket Office highlights the steps in the gardens and indicates alternative routes. This map is also loaned with each Newby wheelchair/scooter. There are a large number of benches throughout most areas of the gardens.
Paths in the Woodland Walk are rough gravel or grassy woodland tracks. While they are generally flat and broad, they may become littered with sticks or muddy from time to time. An accessible route is marked, which avoids a steep and uneven flight of steps.

Newby presents endless opportunities for an inspirational educational visit. The ancient sculptures in the Statue Gallery and the interactive Zimbabwean Sculpture Workshops (from June) give wonderful scope for discovering the arts.
The woodland walk and gardens provide a wealth of material, while the house itself is a very special environment in which to explore form, colour, design and mathematical proportion as well as architecture and social history. During June, July and August, Matombo Zimbabwean Sculpture workshops are available free of charge for all ages – please ask.
Newby’s wonderful adventure playground is a fantastic place to let off steam with an amazing variety of experiences including the miniature railway. There is a large picnic area close to the coach park for lunch and if it is wet, we will do our best to provide undercover space.
