BEST SUMMER DOG WALKS
Crystal Palace Park, London
A place famous for its history, dating back to the 19th century. Take a walk on the Italian terraces to enjoy the antiquity and views, or stroll through the trees.
Dimmingsdale Valley & Furnace Forest, Alton, Stoke-on-Trent
If you haven’t yet visited Dimmingsdale with your dog, you’re missing out! If you’re looking to hide away from the heavier rainfalls during your walk, you can take shelter in one of the huts or enjoy a tasty snack in the dog-friendly restaurant here!
Sticklebarn and the Langdales, Ambleside, Cumbria
This location is a favourite due to its variety of walking trails. To keep it short and sweet on rainy days, the Blea Tarn trail is the shortest walk. This stunning route leads through the forest, providing a little shelter from the rain.
Scarborough Castle, North Yorkshire
This place has the perfect surroundings for walks. But if the spring showers get too much, your furry friend can still get their exercise by exploring the castle’s twelfth century ruins.
Wells-next-the-Sea beach, Norfolk
If you don’t mind a bit of rain, why not take advantage of the beach to avoid the muddy locations? The Beach Café makes Wells-next-the-Sea Beach in Norfolk the pawfect place for a rainy walk.
