English Heritage & KC team up
For all dog owners who struggle to find places to enjoy days out with their beloved pets, English Heritage has teamed up with the Kennel Club to highlight a number of historic sites in the North of England, where dogs will receive a warm welcome and their owners can enjoy a day out worth barking about.
With the majority of English Heritage sites situated in beautiful outdoor surroundings and acres of land or gardens to roam in, visitors and their dogs are spoilt for choice with English Heritage when looking for things to do this spring and summer.
Rosemary Smart, Kennel Club Chief Executive, said: “It’s wonderful to see that English Heritage, which provides such lovely places to visit, also welcomes dogs. The issue is really important to us at the Kennel Club and our ‘Open for Dogs’ campaign is all about improving and extending access to public places for dogs and their owners, so it’s fantastic that English Heritage is leading the way. With the holiday season coming up it will be such good news for so many people that English Heritage provides so many dog friendly sites.”
Some of the top English Heritage dog friendly sites in the North include: Belsay Hall, Castle and Gardens, Northumberland, Birdoswald Roman Fort, Cumbria, Carlisle Castle, Cumbria, Chesters Roman Fort, Northumberland, Housesteads Roman Fort, Northumberland, Lindisfarne Priory, Holy Island, Northumberland, Tynemouth Priory and Castle, Tyne and Wear and Warkworth Castle and Hermitage, Northumberland.
