Pets at Stonehenge
If you're planning to bring the family pet with you to Stonehenge, please make sure you know where they can and can't join you during your visit to avoid any disappointment.
Where Dogs on leads are permitted
- Around the Visitor Centre
- Across the National Trust Open Access fields. Please note that The National Trust has recently created dog free zones in all fields that are grazed by sheep in the Stonehenge landscape where there is permissive access. The walk from the Visitor Centre to the Stones is 1.2 miles.
Please ensure that you clean up after your dog, wherever you are.
Dogs must not be tied up anywhere on site, or left in vehicles in our car park. If we are made aware of an animal in distress inside a vehicle, we will call the police. There is no shade in our car park and even on mild days, the interior temperature can quickly become too hot.
Where Animals are not permitted
- Stone Circle and Monument Field
- Visitor Buses
Stonehenge is protected by the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act 1979. This states that 'bringing any animal onto the site of the monument without the prior consent of English Heritage or allowing any animal to remain after such consent has been withdrawn' is prohibited.
Assistance dogs are automatically permitted in all areas of the site but for any other animals please contact Customer Services for advice in advance of your visit.
