The Great British Dog Walk

What to expect

  • Free bandana with every adult ticket - Every four-legged friend gets a free bandana so they’ll look even cuter.
  • Meet a hearing dog - Find out how deaf people have reconnected with life.
  • Tea and cake - Before evening walks or after daytime walks, it’s great and it’s British! (incurs an additional fee)
  • Fun for dogs - We’re all about dogs! Depending on which walk you take part in, we have dog agility, shows and games.
  • If you ask people to sponsor you or your dog, and raise more than £50, we’ll send you a special Great British Dog Walk certificate to say thank you!

More: Due to Ightham Mote being closed at this time, the ground will be exclusive to The Great British Dog Walk walkers. The walk is extremely picturesque in the Kent countryside with many stunning views to be seen. This is an evening escorted walk starting at 6pm.  Anyone arriving AFTER the walk has left the starting point will not be permitted to join the route for health and safety reasons. Although the walk is due to be finished by dusk, it may be slightly darker in the woodland area so walkers are recommended to bring a torch or head-torch and hi-vis collar or lead for their dog. The walk will start at 6pm with the last walkers estimated to be back at 8pm. Activities will be finishing by 9pm.

If you would like a tasty treat then sausages in baps and tea and coffee will be available to purchase before and after the walk. Please note that cakes will not be avalible at this walk.
