Visiting Exbury with your dog

Dogs are very welcome to visit Exbury Gardens, we simply ask they are kept on a short lead and leave nothing behind but paw prints.

We host Devoted to Dogs Days during the year where visitors accompanied by their four-legged friends are able to receive a discount for entry into the gardens. To find out when our next Devoted to Dogs Day is taking place please check our Events page.

Dogs are allowed into Mr Eddy's restaurant, provided they are well-behaved and kept on a lead. Dogs can also enjoy our delicious canine ice cream!

There are over 22 miles of pathways in the Gardens, with a variety of walking surfaces and different habitats that our four-legged friends can explore. Dog bins are located throughout and are clearly marked on our map. Please keep your dogs on a short lead.

Well-behaved dogs are welcome on the railway but must be kept on a lead.

Water bowls for dogs are available at the following locations:
