Guide dogs and other pets

Guide and assistance dogs are always welcome at Gates Garden Centre.
It is with regret that we are unable to accept other dogs and pets into the garden centre. However, we do have a large dedicated and enclosed dog walking area on site, as well as shaded parking for our customers with dogs. There are also a large number of public footpaths surrounding the centre, perfect for combining a trip to Gates with a leisurely walk in the glorious Leicestershire and Rutland countryside.
