Dog Friendly Cambridge

Cambridge is fast becoming a destination that our four-legged friends can enjoy just as much as us. From dining, to punting there is something for the whole family to enjoy.

Park and Ride

Accessing the city with your pooch has never been easier with the network of Park & Ride buses allowing you to travel with your dog for free (however, they will need to sit on the floor). Buses run from five sites across the city, and tickets cost
as little as £3 return with children travelling free when accompanied by an adult.


Take your time to enjoy a trip down the riverbank with man’s best friend by your side. Scudamore’s Punting love nothing more than seeing our furry friends join them on a punting trip. You can choose between a punting tour or hire your own punt with your canine companions.

Starbucks Puppuccino

The best kept secret is finally out, the majority of Starbucks across the city will make your puppy friend his or her very own Puppuccino if you ask. It’s nothing too fancy, just a cup of whipped cream but boy will your four-legged friend love you for it. Usually free of charge, the baristas may insist on fussing over your canine companion in return for a Puppuccino

A Spot of Shopping

More and more retailers are welcoming dogs into their shops, this gives you the opportunity to browse and shop without having to leave your furry friend behind. John Lewis famously announced recently that dogs are allowed in all their branches and in Cambridge you can browse many a boutique with your pup too.

Eating and Drinking

When it comes to picking somewhere to eat or drink, you are spoilt for choice in Cambridge. You can head to King Street where The Brew House and the Champion of the Thames will give your pup a warm welcome. You can also head to Regent Street where Novi are very happy to accommodate dogs. If you find yourself near the Train Station, The Station Tavern offer Afternoon Tea for your pups, so why not sit back, relax and enjoy the atmosphere safe in the knowledge that your dog is being very well looked after.


You can even do your banking with your dog in tow. Metro Bank located on Christ’s Lane allows you into the branch with your dog, and even provides a tasty treat and a drink of water for them whilst you are being served.

Staying over

The Hilton City Centre on Downing Street allows you to bring dogs as does the ibis in Station Square, The Gonville Hotel near to Parkers Piece and Hotel du Vin on Trumpington Street.


Cambridge is blessed with a number of green spaces that you can walk your pooch on including Parkers Piece, Christ’s Piece and also along by the riverbank. Accessible by all, these are perfect locations to give your pup a chance to stretch their legs.
