Please note:

To ensure all our visitors have a ‘pawsome’ day out please keep all four legged friends under control and on a short lead at all times; clean up after your pet and enjoy access to the ground floors only.

Please be aware that in the interests of safety site staff have the discretion to refuse entry to dogs that are not under control or on a lead.

Contact numbers and information regarding accessibility at our sites can be found on our monument pages. For a full list of all our sites please check our Visit section.
