How to join a park guided walk

Where to meet: Tours start outside the ticket office – look out for our park guides in red shirts. Walks last around 90 minutes.

Booking: Not needed, although groups are limited to 20 people on a first come, first served basis.

What to bring: We recommend wearing sturdy footwear, such as walking boots or comfortable wellies, and suitable clothing for the weather.

Accessibility: There may be steps, uneven ground and hills, so these walks aren’t suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs – but we can be flexible and tailor walks to suit your ability. Speak to a park guide for more information.

Dogs: Well-behaved dogs are welcome on a lead, except in the Deer Park – ask a park guide if today’s walk is suitable for dogs.
