Visiting Claremont Landscape Garden with your dog

Dog walking on a lead

Your four-legged friend is welcome to explore Claremont Landscape Garden between October and April. To help all our visitors have the best possible visit, we simply ask that you adhere to the Countryside Code and keep your dog on a lead at all times.

Please note, you'll need to book your visit to Claremont in advance via our website.

Bringing your dog to Claremont

We welcome well-behaved dogs on short leads between 1 October and 30 April. You'll find a water bowl for your canine friend near the kiosk, and please help yourself to a dog biscuit from the jar. As advised by the RSPCA, please don't leave your dog unattended in a car at any time.

To strike a balance between the needs of our visitors and those of our resident wildlife, we ask that you leave your dog at home between 1 May and 30 September while the geese, ducks and other waterfowl are bringing up their newborns.

The café

Dogs are welcome in our café year round, as the café is separate from our main garden. 

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. There is a dog waste bin outside the toilet block in the lower car park, and bags are available at the kiosk.
  •  Be on the ball: not everyone loves dogs, so keep them close by

Animal welfare

You may not have seen them, but your dog can smell them - Claremont is home to a variety of native animals, including the beautiful roe deer. Please help look after the garden's valued wildlife by keeping your dog on a short lead and under close control.
