BRING 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! There are over 22 miles of pathways in the Gardens, with a variety of walking surfaces and different habitats to explore. The majority of pathways are flat and it is very easy walking. A leaflet given to visitors on arrival shows the location of dog bins.
Well-behaved dogs are also welcome on the Exbury Gardens Steam Railway, which runs a 20 minute journey along a 1¼ mile track into the Summer Lane Garden (not accessible by foot).
Dogs are also allowed into the visitor restaurant and bowls of water are available outside. Further water bowls are found at the main entrance and the railway.
