Looking to explore London with your canine companion? This bustling city is immersed in history, art, culture and with a whole host of places to explore.
Dog friendly London is bursting with places to visit with the pooch, from pubs to hotels, museums to park walks. London is a tail of two cities. Outside of the bustling, jam-packed urban city centre, lies open vistas and leafy landscapes.
In the centre, you’ll find all the most iconic sights and a large number of places to pop in with the pooch. Enjoy popular tourist attractions like Tower Bridge or sit back slurping some pup-tails at the Smith and Whistle.
To flee the crowds with a good dog walk visit Hampstead Heath or the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Venture further to Richmond Park for beautiful panoramas of London followed by a pint in a quiet pub. London is a must-visit on your dog’s adventure list, so definitely check it out.
