Walking your dog at Stourhead

Dogs are welcome on the lead

For those with pre-booked tickets, dogs are welcome in the landscape garden after 2pm between 7 March - 31 October, and all day, every day outside of these dates.

Please help us by keeping your dog on a lead and picking up after it when in the landscape garden. Dogs are welcome across Stourhead’s countryside areas all year round, but you will need a pre-booked ticket to access our car park.
