Visiting with dogs

The Arboretum welcomes dogs to explore the site on our special dog walking route. We hope you and your four-legged friends enjoy your visit to the Arboretum grounds. 

Dog walkers are welcome to use the designated hard-standing dog walking paths on site, and a special dog walking map is available free of charge. This can be collected from our Remembrance Centre or downloaded below. 

Dog waste litter bins are available along the designated dog walking paths and we thank you in advance for using them. There are also tether posts around the site to allow visitors to explore memorials off route. 

Our Coffee Shop, in Heroes' Square, is 'Dog-Friendly'. The Coffee Shop is open 9.30am-4.00pm daily (during the winter months the Coffee Shop operates with reduced opening hours. Please call us ahead of your visit to avoid disappointment), and serves a range of barista crafted coffees and iced drinks as well as a variety of snacks, sandwiches and sweet treats.   

For our regular visitors, the Arboretum also offers an annual parking pass at £25 for the year. These are available to purchase from the Welcome Desk or over the phone on 01283 245 100.

If you would like more information prior to your visit please visit our FAQ page, if we have not answered your question please contact us. 

Please note that due to the nature of our site and for the comfort of all our visitors, only working assistance dogs are allowed within the Remembrance Centre and on the memorials.
