Bring your dog

Belton has over 1300 acres of parkland where dogs on leads are welcome and also in the stableyard and courtyard areas.

There is a doggie bin by the visitor car park and water bowls in the stable yard .

We know not everyone loves dogs though, so the gardens and children's outdoor adventure playground are dog-free areas.

As sunny days become more frequent, Belton has a lots of great spots for a picnic, a ball game or a stroll around the gardens and parkland. Look out for dahlias, primrose and plenty of other summer flowers in the gardens, and the first fawns of the year from mid July.

It all makes for a lovely photo. So please share your snaps with us on Facebook and Twitter.
