Top 5 Dog Friendly Places to Visit | King’s Cross area

January's Top 5 dog friendly places to visit is about one of the most emergent area's in London and our new favourite shopping destination, King's Cross. 
 

COAL DROPS YARD

 

(King's Cross, N1C 4DQ)

We love being able to go shopping with our dogs and are very excited to introduce you to our new favourite shopping destination; Coal Drops Yard. This new development located in the heart of King’s Cross area regroups under its magnificent roof a great mix of individual, independent shops together with signature retail brands. Coal Drop Yards not only has a great selection of stores, it is also a beautiful architectural achievement where we feel very comfortable going around with our dogs. The development welcomes markets and workshops all week round, making it the perfect weekend and/ or weekdays place to go. Coal Drops Yard offers a quiet environment and beautiful volumes, which makes it a very enjoyable destination to go to with your dog to simply hang out.

 

DRINK, SHOP & DO

(9 Caledonian Road, Kings Cross, N1 0RU)

Drink, Shop & Do is the great outcome of two school friends who decided to combine all of their crazy ideas under one roof. I have been going to this place for years. It is such a lovely place where I love going for a classic ‘afternoon tea’. On top of being dog friendly, thisvenue has it all; unconventional coffee shop and cocktail bar where all sort of workshops are being organised for everyone to enjoy. Drink, Shop & Do is a unique venue where the staff is very friendly and you’re welcome to spend a typical and perfect afternoon tea with your dog and friends.

 

BONDS. KING’S CROSS

 

(Coal Drops Yard, Stable St, Kings Cross, N1C 4AB)

Our Netil market’s fellow stand holders and brand friends Earl of East London have recently opened their second store in King’s Cross and we had to tell you all about it. Open seven days a week, bonds King’s Cross offers an amazingly selection of curated products such as scented soy candles, magazines, furniture, clothing and of course, Fetch & Follow products. Whether you’re after a present for your loved ones or for a complete stranger, bonds is the place where you’ll find everything and anything you’re looking for. It is a real challenge to come out of this store empty handed. The space also offers delicious hot drinks for you to enjoy whilst shopping around with your dog. Plus if you’re lucky you might bump into the handsome Oscar, head of operation at bonds (french bulldog on the picture).

 

THE LADY OTTOLINE

 

(11A Northington Street, Bloomsbury, WC1N 2JF)

The Lady Ottoline is a cozy and dog friendly pub where you can find very nice food. The team is friendly and the dining room is beautiful and spacious. The pub managed to keep its original charm after being refurbished not so long ago. This place has all the good things of the new but also all the good things of the old; no ‘old pub stinky smells’ but the warm athmosphere of a classic pub. The food is cooked to order, using fresh, seasonal and local ingredients. Open seven days a week, The Lady Ottoline is a great spot for a quiet drink, afternoon snack or a full meal.

   

THE LIGHTERMAN

(3 Granary Square, Kings Cross, London N1C 4BH)

Located on on Granary Square, we found another great dog friendly venue. The Lighterman is a pub, dining room and a lovely place to relax and enjoy a nice drink and food with friends and your dog. The pub is splitted on three floors which allows you to choose between different ambiances and views across Granary Square and the Regent’s Canal. The menu is various and offers seasonal poruducts and cooked meals. What we like the most is the pub’s terrace situated outside right on the canal. We love seating down there during the warmer days, it’s a brilliant getaway in the middle of this busy area of London.
