Notice to our visitors:
Please note that from time to time there will be limited access to our gardens due to weddings and other events.
Please adhere to the signage in place if there is a wedding happening and we apologise in advance for any inconvenience.
Wheelchair/ Pushchair Access
We are pleased to welcome visitors who use wheelchairs and pushchairs. Accessible toilets are provided and access to the cafe is possible via ramps. The garden is grade II listed; therefore certain parts are inaccessible for visitors with mobility difficulties and pushchairs. Many parts of the garden are accessible but visitors should be advised that there are gravel paths, steps and steep slopes in places. Our staff will be pleased to assist you whenever possible.
Visitors with Dogs
Dogs are welcome to be walked around the Gardens & Lakeside as long as they are kept on a lead. Dogs are permitted in certain areas of the Animal Park and must not be allowed near any enclosures. Only assistance dogs are allowed in all areas of the Animal Park. Dogs are welcome and there is no extra charge for bringing along dogs. We reserve the right to report any animals left inside cars in the car park if we feel they are in distress – but we know you wouldn’t do this.
