Bring the whole family to Arlington Court

Arlington has been a family home for over 400 years, and we like to ensure the whole family is included on your visit. Dogs on leads are welcome in the carriage museum, gardens and the wider estate. Read on to get your tail wagging.

The Chichester's who owned Arlington Court for eleven generations, were a family of dog lovers, proven by a memorial at the back of the house. Today dogs are still welcome in the grounds, formal gardens and carriage museum.

Assistance dogs only are allowed in the house and tea room, but there are plenty of picnic benches in the tea garden so you can enjoy lunch with your pet. Through the year the tea room sometimes offer homemade dog treats to purchase as well.

For the enjoyment of other visitors, please keep your dog on a lead in the pleasure grounds around the house and carriage museum. From 1 April-30 June dogs should be on a lead on all areas of the estate to protect our new born lambs and ground nesting birds.

There are three dog bins on site located by the main car park, disabled parking area and carriage museum. Do ask a member of the team if you'd like any more information.
