Visiting Sandringham

Sandringham's gardens were opened to the public by King Edward VII in 1908, and the Museum by King George V in 1930; Sandringham House was opened to the public at Her Majesty The Queen's wish in her Silver Jubilee year of 1977.

Dogs (except registered assistance dogs) are not admitted in the Gardens but are welcome in the Country Park.  Dog owners should be aware that cases of Seasonal Canine Illness (SCI) have occurred at Sandringham:  SCI is is a mystery illness affecting dogs during the autumn, which can prove to be fatal.

Cases are generally seen between August and November. SCI can affect dogs of any size, shape or sex and it causes dogs to become very ill, very quickly after being walked in woodland.  The most common clinical signs are sickness, diarrhoea and lethargy typically experienced within 72 hours of walking in woodland. If you suspect your dog is showing signs of SCI then please contact your vet immediately.

The cause of SCI is unknown and there are no known preventive measures.
