Top 5 Dog Friendly Places to Visit | Camden & Primose Hill Area

Regent’s Park is one of the most beautiful park in London and Camden being its neighborood, we went to explore the area to find out about the best places to go to with your dog. Camden can get busy at times and so we thought it might be nice to give you a few tips on the area and give you the best places to go to with your dog after you've been on a long walk in Regent’s park.  

 

THE LORD OF STANLEY

(51 Camden Park Rd, London NW1 9BH)

Obviously we found a lovely pub where both indoor and outdoor areas are brilliant. Lord Stanley’s atmosphere is so friendly that we could easily spend the day there without realizing we are in one of London’s busiest area. The terrace is really nice and the pizzas are unbelievable. Of course dogs are allowed (as long as they don’t mind the resident cat). There are really only good reasons to head there if you’re around the area.

 

THE CAMDEN GARDEN CENTRE

(2 Barker Dr, London NW1 0JW)

If you’re looking to do something a bit different around Camden and are like us at Fetch & Follow (flowers and plants lovers), this is a great place for you and your dog to go. With summer coming what best than a plant shopping session with your dog? This plant nursery has an amazing variety of greenery and its coffee/ lunch area serves the best Greek salad in London.

 

CASA TUA CAMDEN

(176 Royal College St, London NW1 0SP)

This lovely Italian caffe is another gem of a place in the Camden area. We love this little caffe's great vibe. Casa Tua has this real feel of Italy where you can find delicious food and coffee. This is definitely a great place to go and check out after a long walk in the park for a treat. 

 

RIPE KITCHEN

(136 Regent's Park Rd, Primrose Hill, London NW1 8XL)

Ripe Kitchen is located on Regent's Park road and has some delicious sandwiches, fresh juices, smoothies and pastries. Both the indoor and outdoor areas are very cosy to sit with your dog for lunch or afternoon snack. The team is super friendly and the place offers a view of the lovely street it is situated on. A perfect spot for some dog and people watching on a Sunday afternoon.

 

PRIMOSE HILL VILLAGE

(Regent's Park Rd, Primrose Hill, London NW1 8XL)

Regent’s Park road located right by Primose Hill is the cutest and most lively street in the area. The street is great for shopping and an afternoon lunch/ tea with your dog. We particularly love all the cafes and restaurants' terraces bringing a lot of life to the street. It feels like a lovely village away from the city. We like popping by the pet shop to get some treats when we go there and do some shopping. There is a charity shop where dogs are allowed in so we obviously like to pop in and have browse through some beautiful pieces for men, women and the home.

 

Finally, it goes without saying, Primose Hill's highlight is its spectacular view of the whole of London. So get your pup and yourself ready to go up the hill as it's really worth it.

 

Top 5 Dog Friendly Places to Visit | Islington area

This month we went to explore the area of Islington. Not so far from our store, we love visiting this area via walking down the Canal. From Hackney to Islington, passing by De Beauvoir, it is actually a lovely walk for both you and your dog.
Here is our selection of top 5 places to visit with a dog in Islington;
 
MALIN & GOETZ
(146 Upper St, London N1 1QY)
We love collaborating with Malin & Goetz and each of their stores are like a ‘shop away from our shop’ when we go around London. Their Islington store is located at the heart of Upper Street. The store is beautifully designed and we love their products, Malin & Goetz’s dog shampoo being our all time favourite. Mr Greenberg, the founders’ beloved rescue pug, whom framed portrait you will find in each of their stores, inspired the dog shampoo :)
 
ANGEL DELICATESSEN LONDON
(48 Cross St, London N1 2BA)
We found a real taste of Italy in Islington. Everything about this place; sound, tastes and warmth reminded us of what typical Italian delicatessens are about. It was just lovely to be greeted in Italian and be served a coffee and pastel de nata by somebody whose great mood was contagious. Their little sunny terrace is the perfect getaway from Islington's busy main road with your dog. It is a great little spot for morning coffee or lunch with real savours of Italy, simple and delicious.
 
 
JOE & THE JUICE
(297 Upper St, London N1 2TU)
Joe & The Juice is one of London’s best bet for amazing juices and dog friendly spaces. Placing an order there is a real challenge not only because of their menu’s hilarious names but also because of how good every single juice sounds. We could easily go there everyday and pick a different one every time seeing how addictive their juices and sandwiches are.
 
 
THE ALBION ISLINGTON
(10 Thornhill Rd, Islington, London N1 1HW)
We used to find it a bit tricky to find a place to eat and hang out with our dogs around Islington until we found The Albion. This gorgeous pub/ restaurant is located on a quiet street only a few minutes away from Upper Street. The food there is truly delicious. It is very cosy and big enough for you, your dogs and friends to go and hang out for a great Sunday roast. We are really looking forward to be able to enjoy their stunning and spacious beer garden, where a ceiling of wisteria appears during warmer seasons.

  

Upper Street shopping
(Upper Street, N1)
Islington is a great area to go shopping with your dog. Upper Street particularly is the perfect spot for a quiet and tasteful shopping session. You’ll find Whistles, Aesop, Jigsaw, Petit Bateau and many more stores where well-behaved dogs are welcome (it is always worth double checking with shopping attendants before going in). We also love going to Mary’s Living & Giving Shop, a charity shop for Save the Children where we can find one the most amazing selection of second hand designer clothes in London.

Top 5 Dog Friendly Places to Visit | Exmouth Market

Exmouth market is a beautiful example of ‘London village life’. This unique area, which is full of independent shops, cafes and restaurants is located between Islington and the City and makes for the perfect afternoon out with the dog.

Exmouth Street Food Market
 

Exmouth Market offers a daily street food market from 12-3pm with Thursday and Friday being the busiest days. This eclectic market of up to 20 artisan food stalls offers an alternative to the average lunch spot . After grabbing some food you can head to Spa Fields Pars to enjoy your lunch while the dog has a run around. The park is small but perfect for a quick stop, plus it has a table tennis table for sunnier days.

Pizza Pilgrims

 If the weather is not one your side then you can head to Pizza Pilgrims to enjoy some of their delicious slow proved Neapolitan Pizza. Dogs are welcome and we are massive fans of their Aubergine parmigiana pizza and if you still have room their Nutella Pizza Ring it's the ultimate in indulgence treats.

Marby & Elm

 We always love to check out and support other independent stores whenever we can and we are big fans of Marby & Elm when it comes to finding the perfect greeting card (we always stock up on them whenever we are there!). The letterpress stationery and design shop is beautiful and all their products are designed in the shop.

 If your looking for a unique gift look no further then Space EC1. The shop has a great selection of gifts ranging from ceramics, jewelry, home-ware and books (we always end up finding an amazing book whenever we pop in!)

Botanique Workshop

 We couldn’t pop to Exmouth market and not pop in and see our friends (along with shop dog Goose) at Botanique Workshop. We featured their Stoke Newington store in our previous post but their space on Exmouth market was their original store and holds the most amazing array of beautifully sourced gifts, flowers and plants.

Gail's Bakery
 
 
Now we normally only feature 5 places to visit but we couldn’t go without telling you about the amazing treats at Gail’s Artisan Bakery. Your not allowed inside with dogs, however they do have an outdoor seating area and all their drinks and pastries can be taken away. Their hot chocolate (which also comes in a vegan option) is out of this world and at this time of year we can all do with a little treat.

Plus all of their takeaway cups are now lined with BioPBS which is made from sugar cane waste and is biodegradable and compostable at room temperature. Being made from sugar cane waste, edible food crop is not sacrificed in the manufacture process.
