Visitor Information

Dogs at Badminton

Well behaved dogs are welcome at Badminton and it’s worth coming just to see the variety of breeds on parade! Please note they must be kept on a lead at all times and may not be taken into the Main Arena Grandstands or Badminton Members’ Enclosure nor any restaurant. The RSPCA stand will assist with any sick, injured or distressed dogs. Do not leave a dog shut in a car at any time (the RSPCA have authority to remove it, breaking in if necessary). For reasons of hygiene and health, please do not allow dogs to foul areas around tradestands or other public places; if they do, please clear up after them – Pooper Scoopers will be available for your use in the Tradestand Area. (Assistance/Guide Dogs only will be admitted to the Members’ Club).
