New multi-use trail at Kingston Lacy

Cycling is one of the best ways to enjoy the wider estate

Together with Sport England and other generous charitable trusts, we are improving our circuit of pathways for the benefit of everyone who enjoys and cares for Kingston Lacy.

The pathway at Kingston Lacy will be a multiuse trail of approximately 4.7 kilometres, ideal for family groups of cyclists and walkers and off-road wheelchair users. The path, a loop, will start and finish in the main car park, close to catering offers and facilities, and take in existing paths and historic carriageways.  New signage will also be installed as part of the improvements which will allow visitors to enjoy their usual activities on newly touched-up paths, with off-road wheelchair access, and provide some new routes to help explore the outdoors.

General Manager at Kingston Lacy Tim Turner said "We already have an established outdoor offer and the new multi-use path will benefit visitors who use the park for exercise and wellbeing - be it cyclists, walkers, those in adapted wheelchairs, families with pushchairs and those needing a little more reassurance underfoot."

Contractors are now on site laying gravel on the first stretch of the new Multi-Use Trail.  This will leave a good surface for all users when the trail opens in 2018.
