Dogs in the garden
For the safety of all our visitors only assisting dogs are allowed in the garden. We also strongly advise that you do not bring your pet on hot days as there is little to no shade in our car parks. Harlow Kennels located next to the garden offer a day boarding service to garden visitors for a small fee, booking is essential: 01423 504859.

Smoking policy
For the health & welfare of our visitors we operate a no-smoking policy, inclusive of e-cigarettes, in or near certain areas of the garden, including: dining or food outlets, eating areas or terraces, picnic areas, covered spaces or buildings and the children’s play area. This may extend to other areas of the garden in periods of very dry weather.

Garden toys
We are sorry but garden toys, such as scooters and balls, are not permitted in the garden.

Group visits

Arrange a group visit to the garden or join one of our Friends of Harlow Carr volunteer-led garden tours.
