Visiting Avebury with your dog

White dog with perky ears

No-one wants to leave a family member at home, so well behaved dogs are welcome at Avebury.

Where can my dog go?

Dogs are welcome everywhere at National Trust Avebury, apart from the Circles Restaurant and Avebury Manor and Garden, where only assistant dogs are allowed.

What do I need to be aware of at Avebury?

Please follow the Canine Code:

  • Take the lead: help reduce the chance of your pup disturbing wildlife by keeping them on a lead.
  • Scoop that poop: bag it and bin it to keep your favourite places beautiful.
  • Be on the ball: not everyone loves dogs, so keep them close by.

Take extra care when walking in the stone circles where there are often sheep, and on the West Kennet Avenue where there are often cattle, be sure to keep your dog on a lead and under close control at all times.

Facilities available for my dog

We sell doggy ice cream in the restaurant and doggy treats at the shop; drinking bowls are available across the site.
