We don't like to leave anyone behind on holiday which is why Liverpool is so dog friendly!

We’re a nation of dog lovers here in the UK and there’s nothing more upsetting than having to leave your furry friend at home when you’re off for a day out or a weekend break. Fortunately, in Liverpool, we understand that you want to be able to bring the whole family along, pet pooch included and have plenty of places to go that will be more than welcoming to your dog.

To help you plan your dog friendly trip to Liverpool, we have put together a list of some of the best places to eat, drink and run around to make sure everyone has the best day ever. 

Don't forget, you can also take your dogs on the Merseyrail Loop line if you need to get the train around the city!

Bars and Restaurants


The Liverpool branch of Brewdog will welcome your canine friend with open arms and is one of the best spots in town for a bit of doggo spotting.
