"Where can I walk my dog?" We get that question all the time at the Info Centre, and the answer is "Almost everywhere". But if you're visiting and want some more specific ideas, here are a few...
The Town Trail. Just follow your nose round town, or pick up a copy of Richmond Walks (£2) from the Information Centre for a more informed ramble.
The Batts: a green riverside area near The Station. Good for splashing!
The Easby Loop. 2.5 mile riverside walk from The Station. Another of the four enjoyable circular rambles in Richmond Walks.
The Old Racecourse, just north of town. Great for flat-out galloping!
Our page on nearby Castles and stately homes flags up all those which allow dogs in their parks and grounds, with a 🐕 symbol.
Scorton Lakes nature reserve; 350 acres of lovely lakes, level tracks and recent re-wilding, just a few miles from Richmond. Pick up a free leaflet/map at the Info Centre.
And don't forget our free, downloadable FAQsheet on Dog-friendly Richmond, which lists dog-friendly cafes, pubs, accommodation and other walks in the area.
(As a responsible dog owner, you don't need reminding to bag and remove poo - and not hang the bag on a stile or a tree... Or that any sign urging you to "keep dogs under control" should be read as "on a lead, please!")
Happy walking. Arf, arf!
