Winter walks at Osterley Park and House

Crisp, sunny days are perfect for a winter walk in the gardens at Osterley

With all-weather paths around the estate, and dog walking in our formal garden, dust off the cobwebs with a winter walk around the gardens and parkland of Osterley Park and House.


Our gardens are open every day from 10.00am-5.00pm and to avoid disappointment, please book a garden ticket in advance. However, where space is available on weekdays, pre-booking may not always be necessary. If you do not book, we cannot guarentee admission.

All our pathways are open, including the play trail, however our rope swings and the Temple of Pan are currently closed. Picnics are welcome, and we have some self-led family activities. Bikes, scooters and ball games are not allowed in the gardens, but can be used in the Parkland. Dogs are not permitted in the gardens. We have one ticket for our car park and gardens.

Winter walkies

This year you’ll be able to enjoy the formal gardens with your four-legged friends from 2 November. Come down to the garden kiosk and explore the wintery landscape. There’s always something beautiful in our gardens, and this time of year is the best time to visit our winter garden, with its rare plants. Or work off some energy with a stroll around the mile-long Long Walk, with beautiful views of the rear of the house. We are limiting numbers into the gardens, so you we advise you book a garden ticket in advance on busy days, such as weekends and school holidays, though this may not be nevecessary on weekdays. Dogs must be kept on a short lead in the gardens at all time. We do limit the number of dogs in the garden at any one time, so you may have to wait at busy times.

Long walks

Enjoy Robert Adam’s vistas as they were intended to be seen by taking one of our pathways around the estate. With spectacular views across Middle Lake looking toward the house there’s no better way to get away from the busy London streets. Walk through woodland and past waterways, before dropping into our café for a warming drink and seasonal food. With the winter sun casting shadows through the bare trees it’s a great time of year to see the estate in stark beauty.
