Dogs on leads are welcome in the Abbey Grounds.
The ruins of the abbey and its buildings are set in peaceful grounds. While the majority of the site is only accessible by grass paths there are some gravel pathways within the complex of the ruins. There is also a beautiful view from the Campanile mound on the site which overlooks the abbey and Canterbury Cathedral is just visible in the distance.
There is plenty of room for children to explore but parents should be aware that the ruins are hazardous with some sheer drops. No ball games allowed. Please do not climb on the ruins.
