Newcastle is a city however that does not mean there aren’t any cracking dog walks around for your four legged friends and we are going to highlight some of the best ones .
Jesmond Dene is a popular dog walking spot, with its cute little pathways and wonderful waterfalls however, there are many more outdoor areas to explore such as Leazes Park. In the centre of Newcastle it is the city’s oldest park, perfect for your pooch and built around a lake it’s another scenic display, you can also enjoy the tennis courts and bowling green.
If you’re after another park to take your canine companion, Paddy Freeman’s is also another popular pooch spot located on Freeman Road. It is well maintained also with tennis courts and a bowling green.
However, if you’re wanting to go a little further out for some sand and sea, Long Sands Beach in Tynemouth is a particular favourite (especially with our Yogi & Bear.) It is one of our beautiful blue flag award winning North East beaches, just a ten-minute walk from Cullercoats Metro station (north) and Tynemouth Metro station (south) it is accessible and a perfect beach offering a great walk.
We also have 44 dog friendly pubs in and around Newcastle to welcome your thirsty pooch, so you can enjoy a quick pint (or two) with your four legged friend. The Blue Bell is always a popular spot located just next to Jesmond Dene and Heaton Park it is a canine hotspot for a well-deserved lunch or drink after your walk.
If you’re heading to the coast, The Dolphin is another dog friendly pub located just outside Tynemouth Village. It prides itself on its old-fashioned, welcoming atmosphere, and its home-cooked food. Dogs are welcomed with open arms, always greeted with a treat and a bowl of water, it is very close to some of the area’s most beautiful coastal walks and car parking is no problem.
We have just named a few spots for you and your dog to enjoy but there are many more parks, pubs and ponds in the area. Our Yogi and Bear love to explore the North East, head out and see what it’s got to offer you and your canine companion.
