Dog Friendly Attractions

Our four legged friends love living here as much as we do and love the chance to explore.

There are a number of dog friendly attractions across the area, here are just some of them waiting to welcome you and your dog.

Eden Project

Dogs are free to enjoy the miles of outdoor paths at Eden, but aren’t allowed in the Biomes or other undercover areas, apart from the Visitor Centre. If visiting with your dog, you should ensure they are kept on a lead at all times, remain with their owners and kept away from children’s play areas. Eden has dedicated dog waste bins, water for dogs available, undercover dining areas for dogs on the terrace outside the Eden Bakery and sheltered parking shelters.

Wheal Martyn

Dogs on leads are welcome throughout the site at Wheal Martyn. They even have tables available close to the café, especially for those with dogs. A visit to Wheal Martyn is for all the family, with the chance to find out more about Cornwall’s rich China Clay mining heritage, discover the Victorian clay works, walk through their nature trails or see modern mining in action at Pit View. There is also plenty of play opportunities for children to enjoy.

Restormel Castle

Dogs on leads are welcome to discover this 13th Century castle with the rest of the family. Open from April until the end of October, Restormel Castle saw action during the Civil War in 1644 and was even visited twice by the Black Prince. Once you’ve done exploring this historic attraction, there are plenty of opportunities to sit and enjoy a picnic in good weather.

Lost Gardens Of Heligan

Dogs are welcome at Heligan all year round. With miles of pathways and routes to explore, the Lost Gardens of Heligan offer up plenty of walks both you and your dog will enjoy. Owners are asked that dogs are kept on leads at all times as they have a variety of rare livestock and poultry around the site. There are a number of dog waste bins located across the gardens, but dogs are not allowed in the Heligan Tearoom or Stewardry.
