Tower Bridge exhibition
A great one to take your dog to, provided it is not a too crowded or too hot day (it gets quite warm up there). We casually discovered that Tower Bridge Exhibition was dog-friendly when chatting with the security at The Monument and soon paid it a visit. You can read all about visiting Tower Bridge Exhibition with your dog and walking on the glass floor here.
Hampton Court Palace
Hampton Court Palace (technically in Surrey, but so close and very much feeling like West London) is a spectacular palace, with a maze, gardens and woodland. You can visit with your dog (on lead) the grounds (but dogs are banned from the palace and the maze). Great for a late Spring visit, when flowers are blossoming. While in order to visit the Palace and the Maze you need to purchase a ticket, you can visit all dog-friendly gardens at Hampton Court Palace for free!

Ham House and Garden
Back in December 2017 and January 2018, Ham House hosted a dog-friendly trial, and we joined a preview visit. Later this year, they hosted a 12 dogs of Christmas event and celebrated the permanent opening of their grounds to dogs. Ham House and Garden is dog-friendly, but with some restrictions: dogs are not allowed in the house, while they can visit (on lead) the Garden, the Orangerie Café and their shop.

Sail on the Regent’s Canal on a dog-friendly electric boat
If you don’t fancy rowing, hiring an electric dog-friendly boat with GoBoat London and sailing on the Regent’s Canal, from Paddington to Little Venice up and then on to Camden Lock, is a great adventure.
GoBoat London’s base is located on the canal in Merchant Square, near Paddington. You can easily walk there either from Edwage Road or Paddington tube stations.
Prices. GoBoat London boats tariffs are per hour per boat and depend on whether you pick an off-peak day (Monday to Friday), or you hire them over the weekend or bank holidays. For one hour it is £79, while 2 hours come at £119.
