We welcome dogs at Chiswick House and Gardens.

Dog-lovers and your dogs and puppies – here’s all our dog-related content in one place.

London x London listed us as one of their ‘Brilliant Dog-Friendly Cafes in London’, saying:

Chiswick House boasts a dog-friendly Café situated amongst 65 acres of wilderness and lakes – your dog will absolutely love you after this excursion…

Get the most out of dog walking

We have plenty of paths around the grounds which are perfect for dog walking. Please help us keep our woodland, lawns and gardens safe, healthy and fun for everyone.

Take the lead: please keep your dogs and puppies on a short lead where signposted – in the Italian Gardens, Kitchen Garden, Café and Café area.

Scoop that poop: thanks to Chiswick House Dog Show Committee and the Dogs Trust, free bags are available at every gate and we have plenty of dog bins. Please ‘bag it and bin it’ to keep your favourite places beautiful and safe.

Look out for the signs: look out for signs for our no dog areas in the picnic area, kid’s playground and Cricket Pavilion and square. Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed inside the House, Conservatory or Shop. Dogs are now allowed into the Kitchen Garden on a short lead and under close control in the Italian Garden.

Keep them close: not everyone loves dogs, including wildlife, so keep them close by and especially don’t let your dog chase or disturb any wildlife by the lake. Dogs may enter the Lake area but not in the water, owners, please don’t encourage them by throwing any objects into the water.

Assistance dogs are welcome inside our House, Kitchen Garden, Café and Shop.

For your information and protection please see the London Borough of Hounslow Dog Control Orders.
