The Cotswolds really does have a rich cultural heritage and some wonderful places with fabulous grounds for your pet to sniff around. We’ve selected the top dog-friendly historic sites and attractions for you to visit and enjoy lots of on-lead exploring with your canine companion.
Built in the late 18th century, Broadway Tower is one of the Cotswold’s top dog-friendly sights to see. Standing at 65 feet high, Broadway Tower is known as the area’s highest castle and has some of the most stunning views in England – you can reportedly see up to 16 counties from the top of the tower! Located on the Cotswold Way, Broadway Tower is a great place to start and end a short circuit or hike with your four-legged friend. Stop by the tower’s dog-friendly café, Morris & Brown and sample their selection of fine teas, coffees and cakes. Doggie visitors can expect a delicious treat too!
