"The Royal Exchange is a Grade I listed building and, as is common which buildings of this calibre, providing access is often the most challenging design issue. Access has to be achieved without major disruption or interference to the listed fabric."

Michael Puckett, then Associate, Fitzroy Robinson Limited (Architect)

"From the outset of the project, the Corporation insisted on a number of provisos, each having implications for the access provision. They included:

Sue Lines (then City of London Corporation Access Officer)

"The staff and management of the Royal Exchange offer sensitive assistance with an open, positive attitude towards helping visitors about the site. This greatly enhances the accessibility of the building and the access to the services available. There are many issues to overcome, but these are mostly affected by the listed status of the building."

Cassie Herschel-Shorland, (Access consultant)
