London is a melting pot of cultures and not just because of the 20+ million tourists that visit this vibrant city each year, but also the diversity of its locals which has influenced the London scene in food, fashion, music and art. The iconic London skyline is as eclectic as its people, with longstanding landmarks such as Big Ben and St Paul’s Cathedral juxtaposed with the modern makings of The Shard and Gherkin. Take your pooch for a stroll along the South Bank to admire these famous sights, or to cover more ground, travel the underground together. Escape the hustle and bustle of the city with a walk through one of London’s Royal Parks – all dog friendly with clear signposting for restricted areas. St James’s Park is a firm favourite and if it’s good enough for a scene in 101 Dalmatians, then it’s good enough for our furry friends. Visit exclusive Mayfair where at the cocktail bar Smith & Whistle & Max, your canine companion can enjoy a Poochie Colada from their ‘Dogtail’ menu. Londoners love dogs and are welcoming them to more and more events and activities including dog friendly cinemas, yoga classes and spas. It’s the pooch-perfect city break destination with stylish dog friendly hotels, including these top 15 stays for the best pet-friendly hotels in London to choose from…
