Harrogate with your four-legged friend

Ever visited Harrogate? If not, put this beautiful town on the list of places you simply have to visit with your dog. This old Victorian spa town is among the most picturesque and scenic that the UK has to offer. It’s surrounded by luscious coutryside, and the town itself is packed with gorgeous architecture. We love simply wandering around this lovely town with our dog by our side.

Fortunately, it has a very dog friendly culture too. Harrogate is replete with lovely dog friendly cafes, plenty of pubs, and a few restaurants to boot. The only challenge you’ll have is choosing where to eat after a long day of rambling with your pooch.

Harrogate offers a large number of parks and green spaces where you can walk and exercise your dog too. The Valley Gardens (providing your dog is on a lead), Harrogate Stray, and nearby Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty provide beautiful settings for you and your dog to enjoy and frolic.
