They want to make it as easy as possible for you to visit Basildon Park and enjoy their 400 acres of parkland and woodland- getting you back to the nature we've all missed.A map of the estate will be available to take a picture of when you arrive, and the walks around the estate are signposted. Keep an eye out for additional signage about nature around the property, and enquire with Visitor Reception about any children's trails or special events they  might have on during your visit! Their shop is full of beautiful homeware, books, garden accessories and much more to browse. It is through your purchases that they are able to continue looking after Basildon Park for everyone, for ever.

If you need to bring a carer or essential companion to accompany you as a disabled visitor, they can visit free of charge.

The tea room is open and is serving hot and cold meals and drinks, sandwiches and light snacks. They will continue to maintain high standards of cleanliness and till and collection points will be screened. Hand sanitiser will be available should visitors wish to use it. 

Dogs on leads are welcome in the garden and parkland at Basildon Park all year round from 10am until 5pm, or dusk if earlier.

Please help them by keeping your dog on a lead and picking up after it.

There are four great parkland walks at Basildon that are ideal for exploring with your dog year round.

The walks range in length from 0.5 miles to 3 miles.

For a shorter walk take a stroll around the gardens towards the back on the house.

Please keep your dog on a lead at all times.


During Spring and Summer they’re home to cattle so please help them and walk your dog on a lead.

If cattle approach you it may be appropriate to let your dog off the lead.

Well behaved dogs are welcome in the shop and dog friendly seating area of the tea-room.

  • Take the lead: help reduce the chance of your pup disturbing wildlife by keeping them on a lead.
  • Scoop that poop: please pick up after your dog.
  • Paws for thought: look out for information signs.
  • Be on the ball: not everyone loves dogs, so keep them close by.
  • They usually have bowls of water in the stableyard - please speak to a member of staff if these need refilling.
  • They do not have a dog bin at Basildon Park.
