Bodiam Castle: the important details

Terrain: The walks aren’t suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs due to being on uneven terrain. However, if you have mobility issues please do get in touch.

Parking: There is plenty of parking at Bodiam Castle. Due to being a National Trust property the car park is £3 per car, unless you are a member as then it is free.

More: This is a great opportunity to walk within the beautiful surroundings of Bodiam Castle. You will get to experience some stunning views whilst taking a walk with a great group of people.

Those who take the longer route will be crossing the Kent Ditch and depending on the weather this can be muddy so it is best to wear wellies. On the long walk you can also look out for kingfishers, the resident barn owls in their barn owl boxes and see the steam train.

After the walk you can take part in our dog agility and dog show. There will be hot drinks & sausages (veggie & meat) available in the Tea Rom from 9.30am, as well as Hearing Dog merchandise and a chance to find out more about the charity. Please book your tickets now, and we look forward to seeing you soon.


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