Let your children play

Lullingstone Country Park has a fabulous play area that is perfect for children under 12. It contains a selection of climbing equipment and slides aimed at toddlers and younger children.

For the more adventurous, try following our Discovery Trail, where you will find a cradle swing and zip wire nestled in amongst the trees.

Dog walking

Dogs are welcome at Lullingstone Country Park but must be kept under control.

We ask that owners keep dogs on leads around the car park, café and play area, but they can be let off the lead in other parts of the park.

Please clear up after your dog and take waste back to key entrances for disposal in the dog waste bins provided.

There is a tap for dog drinking water at the main entrance to the visitor centre and drinking bowls are provided by the café.

Horse riding

Horse riders are welcome at Lullingstone Country Park and there is a 4 mile (6.3km) waymarked route that allows you to explore the park from horseback. Please talk to us about where to park your horse box before visiting.

Orienteering

A permanent orienteering course is available at the park for everyone to use.

Download an orienteering map from the Dartford Orienteering Klubb website or you can purchase a laminated map from the park shop for £1.
