Dog Friendly

Four-legged friends are very welcome at Castle Howard

We love our four-legged friends, and they are very welcome at Castle Howard, but must be kept on a short lead at all times for the safety and comfort of both our visitors, and our wildlife. We also ask dog owners to clean up after their pets.

Dogs are welcome in the outdoor seating areas at our cafés and water bowls are provided. Well behaved dogs are welcome inside our Coffee Shop, Farm Shop, Fitzroy Cafe, Boathouse Cafe and Courtyard Cafe. Bones are available to buy from the Farm Shop, subject to availability.

Dogs are not permitted in the Skelf Island Adventure Playground, Kelly Car Land Train, or in the House, with the exception of assistance dogs.

The Garden Centre has a great range of gifts, treats, and equipment for pets (and their owners) and animal themed products, so do pop in on your way back to the car park, and find that perfect pet present!

We host a variety of dog-friendly events throughout the year, sign up to our newsletter to keep in touch.
