Dog Walking in Liverpool
There are plenty of places for dog walks in Liverpool and we have included some of our favourites here to explore:
Humans and doggy pals alike love a day out by the sea and only a short drive away is Crosby. You can walk a dog along the sandy Blundellsands Beach and take in the famous installation ‘Another Place’ by British sculptor Antony Gormley. Watch the tide go out and reveal 100 cast-iron figures stretched along 1km of expansive coastline.
Whether you are local or from further afield, you must go for a stroll in Sefton Park. Dog walks in this Green Flag awarded open space are made special by the Grade II listed Palm House. In the park you will also find a Neverland statue, a replica of the Peter Pan statue found in Kensington Gardens, London. You will also find yet another Beatles reference in the park, as the Victorian Bandstand allegedly influenced the Beatles’ Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.
If you’re new to Liverpool how about doing your own mini walking tour! If you want to soak up some Beatles spirit wander down to Stanley Street and have your photo taken with “Eleanor Rigby”. Bonus points if you can get your dog sitting on the bench to pose! If you want to continue with the Beatles theme you can visit the Fab Four’s very own statue tribute on Liverpool’s waterfront. While there, why not wave at the people making their journey on a ‘Ferry ‘Cross The Mersey’ and try not to get the well-known song by Gerry & The Pacemakers stuck in your head!
Next you could head to Formby National Park which takes around 40 minutes by car or train from Liverpool city centre. Take a chance to spot a rare red squirrels in this doggy friendly pine woodland, although, when in the squirrel area you must keep the dog you are walking on a lead. There are some doggy-friendly picnic locations so it is the perfect excuse to bring the picnic hamper.
Where to eat in Liverpool with your dog
A famously dog friendly watering hole. As you sit back and enjoy a drink, your dog will be looked after with their own fresh bowl of water! They get a big paws up as they have their very own Caledonia Vegan Kitchen. They also have a wonderful doggy community with monthly events so check their website for upcoming events. They regularly have live music nights, so you never know when you might just discover the next big thing!
The Interesting Eating Company

They also have an ever-growing list of gluten-free options. Try to resist the puppy dog eyes and not give your pooch ALL of your bacon!
After working up an appetite with lungs full of fresh sea air in Formby head to The Freshfield. They are not only dog friendly but doggy dedicated as they have installed a special dining area for humans and 4-legged friends to relax together. If your dog has been a particularly good boy or girl, they have a dog menu!
