Browse our list below and discover pawesome places where dogs are welcome. As well as joining you on walks and tours around the city, well-behaved woofies can hop aboard sightseeing trips along the harbour with Bristol Ferry Boats and certain Bristol Packet Boat Trips

There are also plenty of attractions who accept pups, such as Tyntesfield and Westonbirt (in their dog friendly arboretum), meaning your waggy friend can enjoy Bristol just as much as you on your city break.

Bristol also provides plenty of stick-throwing opportunities, with hundreds of beautiful parks and green spaces offering plenty of outdoorsy fun where your dog can run off some steam, explore and have a holiday of their own. Particular favourites of local dog owners include Ashton Court Estate, Leigh Woods, Blaise Castle, Stoke Park and Snuff Mills on the outskirts of the city. Some of the smaller, city centre parks include Castle Park and Queen Square in the city-centre.
