Four legged friends welcome at Sheringham Park

Dog walking on a lead

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 varied habitats of Sheringham Park.

On hotter summer days when you and your four legged friend are looking for a bit of shade, try our tree trail for a cool walk of just under two miles. Our staff in the visitor centre will be pleased to point you in the right direction.


Follow our lead

You are welcome to let your dog off the lead in many areas of the park, as long as it’s under close control. By this we mean your dog is in sight at all times, you are aware of what it is doing, and it will return to you promptly on your command. This is particularly important during the bird breeding season.

Please remember not everybody loves dogs, so be considerate to each other and put your dog on a lead if you think it might be upsetting other visitors.
We also ask you keep your dog on a lead in the car park and around the visitor centre, the toilets and courtyard café.
Signage will indicate where cattle are grazing, and we also ask you to put your dogs on a lead in such areas. In the unlikely event of cattle chasing you it is then safer to let your dog off the lead.

Where can your four legged friend go?
The only area where dogs are excluded is the Bower as many 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 is in the wildlife pond.
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 shop/visitor centre where they can choose themselves a new lead, collapsible dog bowl or a tasty treat. They can also join you as you choose a drink or bite to eat for yourself in the courtyard café.
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.
