Designated routes around Wakehurst.


Included with entry to the gardens

We are excited to welcome your four-legged friends for walks across our 500-acre wild botanic garden at Wakehurst.

Take your furry friend on a specially curated dog-walking route that takes in our sights, sounds and smells. You’ll get to ramble through Bloomers Valley, the perfect spot to enjoy a view of the dramatic Wakehurst landscape, alongside our our stunning Water Gardens, a peaceful oasis in the heart of Wakehurst.

Energetic pups can roam free in a new off-lead area overlooking the Millennium Seed Bank, our Noah’s Ark for plants.

Before heading home, pop by our dog-friendly Seeds Café to enjoy a range of drinks, snacks or a light lunch. Our shop is also dog-friendly, stocked with a range of gifts, plants, books and homeware.

Grab a dog walking map at our entrance so you’re prepared for the best places to get water, dog treats, waste bins and complimentary biodegradable waste bags.
