Bringing your dog to Speke Hall

A man sat at a picnic table with his brown dog standing on the table top, looking into the distance.

Dogs are more than welcome to explore most areas of Speke Hall's grounds as long as they are kept on short leads, but there are a few things you need to know.

As we currently have a one-way route in place for all visitors to follow, we're allowing dogs in all areas of the gardens and grounds that are open except for the formal play area, woodland play area and the Childe of Hale trail. Please note that this is subject to change.

From the semi-ancient Clough woodland to the scenic Bund walk, there are plenty of special places across the Speke Hall estate to explore with your dog. Here are a few important things to remember when visiting:

  • You'll find bins at Home Farm and by the Orchard, where you can also take a seat and rest.
  • Please bring your own dog bags to pick up any waste. Dog waste left on the ground, even in dog bags, is not only unpleasant but also dangerous to the wildlife that call this place home.
  • If your pooch is thirsty, you'll find a water bowl outside the main restaurant.
  • Assistance dogs are welcome in all areas of the grounds and the house.
