Days Out with Dogs & Kids

It’s the school holidays or a nice weekend, what can you do that’s fun for both children and dogs? Here are some ideas from our members for great days out with all the family. Many venues are ‘dogs on lead’ only, and please see individual websites for any further or updated rules. Enjoy!


Aldenham Country Park

Dogs are welcome in the park and farm as long as they remain on the lead and under control at all times.

Brooks Farm Outdoor Learning Centre


Skeltons Lane Park
London E10 5BS

We are HUGE dog lovers and think its really important for the whole family to be able to enjoy a day out so we have very recently started to allow dogs to visit the farm strictly on leads and under control and only in our outdoor café area. We have animals walking around loose on the farm and the sheepdog and their welfare is our top priority.
