Bringing your dog?

Two dogs outside the Guardian's entrance to The Workhouse

The Workhouse is now able to offer a place for you to walk your dog on-site. Dogs on leads are welcome on our picnic field adjacent to the car park. Please use the bins provided for any waste.

Please note that only assistance dogs are allowed in the The Workhouse building and gardens.

Water bowls are available by the toilet block in the car park. Please make sure your dog is comfortable when leaving them in your vehicle.

If your dog wants a longer walk then there is a pleasant public footpath through a local community orchard within 50m of the site. Exit the car park by the pedestrian gate, cross Workhouse Lane and follow the pavement over the bridge and the public footpath is signposted on your right. If you are feeling more energetic then at the end of the footpath cross the road, turn left and look out for the Southwell Trail on your right (it has its own car park) which is a multi-user path on a disused railway line. Return by the same route.
