Waggy tail days at Beningbrough

Dog walking around Beningbrough's gardens

We love dogs and it’s clear that so do many of our supporters. Many National Trust places already welcome dogs into their gardens, so we’re inviting you to bring your four legged friend along on your visit. Here’s what you need to know on your doggy day out to Beningbrough.

The trial is completed and dogs are welcome on open days.


Doggy dos and don’ts

We recognise that not everyone loves dogs, so we’ve put together a few essentials to ensure the trial days listed below are fun for all.

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. If you don’t have a short lead we can lend you one.

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. Download a map Dog free zones (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 near the path to the farm shop. If you run out of bags let us know as we have some.


Parkland walks

Dogs are welcome in the parkland anytime it’s open. With miles of paths to explore, you and your dog will be spoilt for choice. Take a look at the route or ask for a map when you get to admissions.
