Other

Dogs are welcome on leads. We’d ask you to consider the suitability of the tour for your dog before bringing them, as there may be other dogs on the tour and some visitors are nervous around dogs. The guide will be talking throughout the tour, which may not be suitable for dogs who require more attention. Also, the walk covers a large area with inclines so your pooch may need a packed lunch and water too.
