Walkies at Wisley is back for Spring and Summer 2022

Usually, RHS Wisley is closed to dog walkers except for Assistance dogs, who are welcome in all areas of the garden and buildings, but on certain dates, the garden opens up for all dogs to explore.

This year's Dog-Friendly Walkies at Wisley will be taking place from the end of April to the middle of September, allowing you and your pup to explore the best of the summer blooms.

Intrepid hounds will be delighted by all the sights, sounds and smells of the many garden zones, but be sure to keep them on their leads and follow all the rules laid out by RHS Wisley, such as no more than two dogs per person and no dogs allowed in the children’s play areas.

You will also be able to treat your pooch to some tasty treats such as a Scoop’s doggie ice cream, mini beef burger or duck and venison sausage. And well-behaved dogs are also welcome to accompany owners to an alfresco dinner at the Terrace Restaurant on Walkies at Wisley days.
