A short walk from town, the ‘Brampton Park‘ is a very popular place for people to take their dogs for a walk. We enjoy meeting up with friends here, including Piglet the Frenchie!
There is a lot to see and do here including a museum, aviary, playground, sensory garden and a big open grass area where dogs can enjoy running around.
Pictured below is the pond with an aviary in the background. There are no signs saying that dogs are not allowed in this area but it’s best to use your own judgement if you think your dog could disturb the birds and animals housed here.

Sensory garden | This is a great area to let dogs sniff around and explore.
We love to visit Brampton Park with Elsa, particularly when Piglet comes out to play too!
To get to The Brampton from town you will most likely walk past this blue plaque on Queen Street, which honors Thomas Mayer who established the veterinary practice here in 1813. Find out more here.
The Charter Veterinary Surgery still stands on this historic site.
Continuing along Queen Street from town towards The Brampton, you will come across Station Walks, a tree lined promenade where you can also walk your dog. More information about the history of Station Walks can be found here.
Additional information about The Brampton Park area:
- Free car park, usually plenty of spaces available
- Dog waste bins available
- Walking distance from Newcastle-under-Lyme town centre where you can also enjoy a coffee or lunch with your dog in Cappello Lounge, then do some shopping in Hounds. A local groomer, Paws & Co Staffordshire is very close to here if you fancy treating your pup or just need to have those muddy paws washed off!
