Walking at Arlington

Rosalie Chichester bequeathed the Arlington estate with the express desire that visitors could enjoy the outdoors. There are over twenty miles of footpaths to explore, ranging from easy strolls to more demanding walks. Whichever paths you travel you can be sure of beautiful surroundings, peaceful paths and unexpected surprises.

Do I need to pre-book? 

The ground floor of the Carriage Museum and house, garden, wider estate, tea-room, second-hand bookshop and toilets are now open. On weekdays you don't need to pre-book your visit. At busier times, like weekends and school holidays, booking is recommended to guarantee entry. From Monday 28 June you will no longer need to pre-book your entry ticket to Arlington. In line with government guidance, you're required to wear a face covering in most enclosed spaces, unless exempt. Please bring one with you.
