dog walking spots in London

London may be one of the busiest cities in the world, but one of its most redeeming features has to be its dog friendly nature. You'll find London is surprisingly welcoming to our canine family members. With all the dog friendly cafes, restaurants and our dog loving transport system, London is a great place to be a pet owner!

But the best thing about London for our dogs has to be the sheer volume of parks for all the sniffing, running, ball chasing and playing a dog can dream of. According to Greenspace Information for Greater London CIC, 2015, London is 47% green space!

We’ve been trying to find the best dog walking spots in London to take your best friend and this time, we’re writing about Brockwell Park.

Brockwell park is just south of Brixton and dog owners from Herne Hill, Tulse Hill, and Brixton flock here in the summer to give their dogs a good stretch. You can also visit Brockwell Hall which stands in the centre of the park and is a great place to purchase tea, coffee and some lovely cakes. The Lido Cafe in the middle of the park offers bottomless water bowls and offers breakfast for dogs!
