Cost: Adults: £10 online, Children (under 16): free

Distance: 3km (shorter route but uneven and steep in places so not suitable for everyone) or 8km (longer, more challenging route).

Minimum Sponsorship: No minimum sponsorship but if you raise £50 or more you'll receive an exclusive Great British Dog Walk mug or, if you raise £100 or more you'll receive a free puppy sponsorship!

Terrain: Please note the routes are over varied terrain, including stiles, and some areas can be uneven. For this reason we recommend you contact us to discuss any mobility issues. Both routes do include some steeper slopes and the longer route particularly can be quite challenging.

Parking: There are both paid for and free car parks at Temple Newsam. The car park nearest the house is patrolled and charged at £4.20 per day. Other car parks are free and overflow parking is also available.

Other Facilities: Toilets, cafe, gift shop

More: This is a great opportunity to explore the stunning Temple Newsam, a country estate in the city of Leeds. The walk starts and finishes at the historic Tudor-Jacobean house and takes in the beautiful Rhododendron Walk and surrounding scenic parkland. There will be fun activities to do along the routes with our exclusive walker pack and games to enjoy before and after the walk, so get your tickets and we look forward to seeing you there!

Because of the number of dogs expected, we do ask that dogs are kept on lead for the duration of the walk.

A great day out for all the family!

When you walk, you help people like Joanna… 

Joanna Marshall 500x500

“Since having Marshall my life keeps getting better and better. His uniform indicates that I’m deaf and this gives me confidence. Whereas before, I would avoid talking to people, now I’m far less anxious about not understanding them so I no longer hide away in the shadows.”
– Joanna and Marshall


Please take part in the Great British Dog Walk and help more deaf people like Joanna to leave loneliness behind.
