Visiting Claremont Landscape Garden with your dog

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.

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. Keep an eye out for a trail created specially for dogs and their humans, usually available for several weeks during the autumn.

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.

 

Dog-walking etiquette

So everyone can enjoy Claremont's historic landscape, please always clear up after your dog. Tthere is a dog waste bin outside the toilet block in the lower car park, and poo bags are available at the kiosk.

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.

Dogs are welcome in the seating area outside the café. There are large umbrellas on the terrace to provide shelter for dog walkers.
