Four legged dog friends welcome at Sheringham Park

If you’re planning on visiting Sheringham Park with your dog, you’ll be pleased to know it’s very welcome! With 1,000 acres to explore and marked trails of between one and five miles, we hope you and your dogs will enjoy the many varied habitats.

Follow our lead

We are currently asking for all dogs to remain on leads throughout the estate during the bird breeding season, 1 March – 1 August. 

Signage will indicate where cattle are grazing. In the unlikely event of cattle chasing you it is then safer to let your dog off the lead. 

More information on walking with livestock.
Please be aware that there is a possibility of adders being present between February and November.

Where can your four legged friend go?

The only area where dogs are excluded is in the Bower garden, as families and school parties use this area for a variety of fun and educational activities. You can secure your dog to a post outside while you go in to see the wild flower meadow, sensory garden and to find out what’s in the wildlife pond.

Our canine code

We want to make sure you and your dog get the most out of the woodland, parkland, and all the way down to the beach. From improving dog-friendly trails to providing more waste bins and water bowls, we're taking steps to make sure you and your pup feel welcome.

In return, we ask you to keep the countryside a safe, healthy and enjoyable place for everyone. 

We’ve teamed up with Forthglade to create this canine code, so you and your four-legged friend can help care for the places you love:

Take the lead: help reduce the chance of your pup disturbing wildlife by keeping them on a lead.

Scoop that poop: bag it and bin it to keep your favourite places beautiful. 

Paws for thought: look out for information signs and take extra care on cliff paths.

Be on the ball: not everyone loves dogs, so keep them close by.


Bone appétit

Drinking bowls and hitching posts are provided around the visitor centre. We are happy for you to bring you dog on a lead into the Courtyard Café, where they can join you as you choose a drink or bite to take away.
Everyone knows how unpleasant dog mess is, so please help Sheringham Park remain a beautiful place by bagging it and binning it. You’ll find bins sited along the main drive and close to the car park, or feel free to take any waste home with you and dispose of it there.
