Kent Pooch Passport

We love dogs here at the National Trust and wanted to give that extra special treat for our canine friends this winter in Kent.

From ancient woodland wanders to pristine garden strolls, cliff top and castle views, Kent has so many different backdrops to choose from, ready for the next time you’re out with your dog.

We know how much our visitors love bringing their dogs out with them on a visit to Chartwell or one of the many other National Trust properties in Kent. So from this November, we are launching a brand new Pooch Passport.

Between November 2019 and February 2020, you can collect stamps from any of the six participating National Trust places – can you collect them all?

Once you have collected all six stamps, make sure you stop by visitor reception for an extra special treat for your dog.

Each location is unique and some are home to fragile planting and varied wildlife. You may need to keep your four-legged friend on a lead and keep to paths at some places; check on arrival for tips on the best ways to explore.

We love seeing all your canine companions on your visits to us – make sure to tag your pictures with #poochpassport

Dogs are welcome in lots of the countryside we look after in and around Kent. From rolling hills near the Ightham Mote estate to sheltered woodland at Chartwell.
