Visit Attingham with your dog

A dog on a lead in the grounds at Attingham Park

Exploring our acres of parkland with your four-legged friend is a great way to enjoy the beautiful landscape, and we welcome well-behaved dogs.

Attingham attracts thousands of dog walkers a year, so to ensure that everyone can enjoy their visit we've put together a dog policy to give you more information on bringing your cuddly canine here for a day trip. This policy was last updated in 2017.


The ins and outs

We welcome assistance dogs only in our indoor spaces, including the Mansion and our indoor catering outlets - all paws are very welcome to explore our grounds.

Paws-ing for snacks

After a good walk, you and your dog might need a sit down and a drink. We’ve got outdoor seating for dog walkers outside our Mansion Tearoom and Carriage House Café. In the Stables Courtyard, to the left of the Carriage House Café we’ve created the Dog Walker’s Rest, which is a paws friendly area under cover with dog bowls and water. We also have outdoor catering at the Greedy Pig, in our Playfield, serving hot drinks and snacks. Opening times vary so please check online nearer the time of your visit. 

We also have '10 minute dog tie up points' in the Stables Courtyard. You may tie your dog up here for a maximum of 10 minutes while you visit the second-hand bookshop, Stables Shop, toilets, and Carriage House Cafe.

Short lead, On lead and Off lead areas

In the grounds you will find areas designated as 'Short lead' - busy areas around out entrance and buildings where dogs must be on a short lead; 'On lead'  - areas where dogs must be on a lead; and 'Off lead' - areas where dogs can explore off lead so long as they are well traned and respond (and come back), when you call. Further details can be found in our 'Visiting with your dog guide' available at Visitor Reception or online below.
