If you wish to bring a service dog into the park, please contact us before your visit - for the welfare of our animals we will make decisions on a case by case basis.

Lockers are available for the storage of small items. Askham Bryan does not accept liability for the loss of any items.


There is a small café in our entrance foyer, where you can pick up your faviourite latte or a delicious donut.

At weekends the cafe will be open from 11am - 2.30pm.
