It’s a dog’s life!

A dog-friendly guide to London, by Dexter and Cheval Collection

Most pet owners would agree that their furry friends are very much a part of the family. So, it’s natural to consider their needs when planning a trip away. Traditionally this would involve an extended stay at the kennels or the services of a local sitter. At Cheval Collection, we welcome all pets, so you can sit back and relax at one of our luxurious locations without having to leave anyone behind. Your furry friend will receive the same five-star service as their human owners, with comfortable beds and delicious treats available on request.rnrnWe recently had a very special guest at Cheval Three Quays, who wanted to share his favourite dog friendly spots in London near our Residences.

Expect a bowl of water to keep them hydrated and plenty of love and attention from Sketch’s team of dog lovers.

London is known for its beautiful and unique parks that are scattered across the city. Visit Holland Park and explore its beautiful Kyoto Garden, a peaceful haven donated by the Chamber of Commerce of Kyoto in 1991. Take a leisurely stroll, row a boat or swim in the Serpentine at Hyde Park. Rest assured there is plenty to see and do, with more than 4,000 trees, a lake, a meadow and rose gardens, an ideal place for paws to explore. If you’re staying in the city at Cheval Three Quays or Cheval Calico House, Potters Fields Park (pictured) is a unique green open space by the Thames with views of Tower Bridge.
