Dog Walking in Kensington & Chelsea
Being so dog friendly, it makes sense that Kensington and Chelsea has some fab places to walk a dog, here are just some of our favourite spots for a game of fetch.
If you’re looking for a nice long dog walk, Hyde Park is one of Central London’s biggest open spaces and the biggest of the four Royal Parks. There is plenty of greenery for four legged and two legged friends to explore and enjoy. The Lido Bar and Cafe & Serpentine Bar and Kitchen also have a great selection of snacks available as well as water bowls ready for thirsty post walk pups.
If you’re a dog sitter in Kensington and Chelsea and are looking for a lovely flower filled walk then Kensington Gardens is the place to head to. Be sure not to miss out on the Tiffany & Co Foundation drinking fountain on The Broad Walk.
It’s designed with pooches in mind, as you press for water at the top, the doggy drinking area is also filled below – wagnificent.
Where to eat in Kensington & Chelsea with your dog
While local British pubs are always an option, what sets Kensington and Chelsea apart is their warm acceptance of pups in their white tablecloth establishments.
Egerton House hotel
This five star hotel is considered by many as one of the most luxe London has on offer. Although they are super fancy, they have kept their values in check. They encourage doggy guests and to prove it they have a bunch of pooch friendly perks to help make sure your pets experience is pawtastic. From pup friendly afternoon tea, a grooming service, toys, treats and even a pet concierge this place really is a dog’s dream.
Most would assume that fancy English tea’s are typically pup free. But Ampersand lets you splurge on innovative pastries and finger sandwiches with your pup by your side. While the environment is that of a beautiful English drawing room and the tea some of the best England has on offer, they have managed to keep things cozy.
The Builders Arms
While the list of dog friendly establishments in Kensington and Chelsea is impressive, the Builders Arms is one of the few that offers dog biscuits and water bowls. Their relaxed vibe also helps you feel at ease that if your pup happens to step out of turn, you don’t need to sneak off in shame.
