Dog Walking in Cambridge
If you could ask your pup what he or she likes to do most - walkies would probably be pretty high on the list, so we thought we’d better start with our favourite dog walks in Cambridge.
If you’re walking a dog in Cambridge, Stourbridge is a large open space just north-east of central Cambridge. It borders the river Cam and can easily host a 5 mile walk for an energetic dog - though be aware that there are often cows grazing in the fields.
Filled with wildflowers in the summer, this nature reserve boasts walks of all natures; woodland, riverside, parkland and hedgerow. There are designated dog zones, and they use a coloured system - green zones are where your pooch can run around off lead, orange they must be on lead. Perfect for a dog walker in Cambridge looking for a new walk with their pup!
This is a popular place for events including the strawberry fair, fairgrounds, the circus and fireworks. It’s an enclosed park so is safe to let your dog off the lead (though there are free roaming cows) just watch out for cow pats!
Things to do in Cambridge with your dog
Located on the River Cam, this city is home to the prestigious University of Cambridge which was founded in 1209 and recognised world-wide. Punting is a staple recreational activity here, and dogs are permitted aboard the boats - though mind they don’t knock you off! If punting isn’t for you, Cambridge has plenty of lovely brunch spots for humans and pup’s alike.
