Visiting Claremont Landscape Garden with your dog

Dog walking on a lead

Your four-legged friend is welcome to explore Claremont Landscape Garden all year round. 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.

Bringing your dog to Claremont

We welcome well-behaved dogs on short leads all year round. 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.

Keeping our wildlife safe

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.

Respecting all visitors

Please remember that not everyone loves dogs. Please keep your dog on a short lead and do not allow your dogs to approach other visitors. To avoid distress to your dog, other dogs and visitors, do not leave your dog unattended or alone in a car.
