Bring your dog to Beningbrough

Plan a day out with your four-legged friend and bring your dog for a walk to selected parts of Beningbrough's eight acre garden.

Assistance dogs are still welcome in all areas of the estate, including all buildings, just as they have always been. 

The gardens

We have eight acres of beautifully kept gardens and you can now share this with your four legged friends. Wander through the Pergola, stroll along the ha-ha walk with the views over the parkland or find a bench in the American Garden. We hope to bring new adventures for you and your dog.

There are some areas we have had to exclude so please read on for a few extra details.

Doggy dos and don’ts

We recognise that not everyone loves dogs, so we’ve put together a few essentials to ensure that visits to Beningbrough are fun for everyone.

  • Leads: please keep your dog on a short (non-extendable) lead. At busy places like Beningbrough, extendable leads can cause injury to other visitors. Please help us keep everyone safe.
  • Dog walking areas: you can enjoy most of the gardens, with the exception of the children’s wilderness play area and the walled garden where produce is grown for the restaurant. Dogs are welcome in admissions, the shop and the Brew House. Assistance dogs can go in all buildings. Take a look at the dog free zones map (PDF / 0.3MB) download   or ask for a leaflet when you arrive.
  • Leaving your dog: for the comfort of your dog and everyone’s safety, please don’t tie up or leave your dog alone. If you need some help, just ask.
  • Dog waste: please pick up your dog’s poo and dispose of it in the bin. You’ll find one at the entrance of the walled garden opposite admissions and one in the corner of the car park. If you run out of bags let us know as we have some.

Dining with your dog

Dogs are welcome in the Brew House when it's open; this is currently a take away cafe and seating has been removed for everyone's safety. You'll find sandwiches, snacks, cakes, hot and cold drinks as well as ice creams for you and special canine ice cream for your dog too! You will also find the toilets behind the Brew House.

Parkland walks

Dogs are welcome in the parkland with miles of paths to explore, you and your dog will be spoilt for choice. Take a look at the routes or ask for a new parkland walks leaflet when you get to admissions. 

Currently due to capacity controls, please book a ticket for a visit via the What's On area, even if you only intend to visit the parkland. This way the welcome team know to expect you and we can keep the car park flowing for everybody's safety.
