We are trialling a dog free hour in the garden at Lyme on Saturday mornings between 9.30-10.30am.
Following visitor feedback, the garden will open an hour early on Saturdays for visitors who don’t want to share their visit with dogs.
Our dog free hour means that pet dogs cannot visit during this time but dogs will still be welcome in the garden between the normal opening times of 10.30am–3.30pm and we are not planning to change the amount of time that dogs are allowed in the garden.
Pre-booking is essential as spaces are limited during this trial. The dog free hour is free to book but normal admission charges upon arrival apply, members can visit the garden for free.
