It is essential to book a ticket as visitor numbers are limited for the welfare of our animals, and to provide a better visitor experience.
Aviaries close at 2pm every day for the welfare of our birds.
Peaceways is England’s first pet crematorium, established in 1964 by Miss Raymonde-Hawkins, MBE, Founder of Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare, a short distance away. Since then, it has helped many people navigate the difficult journey of what to do when a pet dies and how best to remember them.
Peaceways provides a caring, sensitive and personal service to help you to say goodbye to your beloved animal companion. Set in beautiful woodland surroundings near Ringmer in East Sussex, Peaceways is a haven of calm, giving you the choice and time to say your final farewells. And, when the time is right, it also offers you the opportunity to return to reflect and commemorate the memory of your pet in the tranquil Rose Garden of Remembrance.

There is a choice of private cremation – your pet’s ashes will be ready for collection after a few days. Alternatively, we offer a communal cremation where the ashes are scattered in the grounds at Peaceways.
A wide range of urns, caskets and keepsakes are available to help you cherish the memory of your animal forever. Prices range from £22 and we can help guide you through your choices.
Peaceways is open 7 days a week from 9am to 3.30pm - excluding Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
By appointment only please.
Please contact Jeff Tucker, Peaceways Manager on 01825 841460 or 07985 925378 to discuss your personal requirements or to arrange a visit to Peaceways.

When Layla arrived at Raystede we were astonished by her condition. This year we have had 1,076 requests to take in dogs, like Layla, who can no longer be cared for by their owners.
This is an animal welfare crisis.
