Share your big city break with your beloved pup by staying in one of these hotels, where dogs are greeted as equal guestsLess
Join the Bloomsbury set and resident dog Winston in this striking 19th-century hotel with its two-tone exterior, multicoloured marble and dark wood panels and doors.
A handy hotel for those travelling to London by train, The Standard is just across the road from St Pancras. One of the most pet-friendly hotels in the capital, it levies no extra charge for your four-legged friends and they never need to leave your side — the restaurant welcomes pups, as does the rooftop bar.
When only chandeliers and marble bathrooms will do, head to The Lanesborough to lord it up with your faithful hound in tow. Expect pastel tones, gold leaf and a personal butler service.
Ideally located for those wanting to do some Oxford Street shopping, Treehouse Hotel brings the outdoors in with plenty of plants, wooden floors and a rooftop bar and terrace.
This 17th-century listed building used to house the aristocracy — now it’s a boutique hotel giving dogs a royal welcome. With your dog by your side you can feast on oysters and glug champagne at the Coppernose Bar, which also serves up a Bollinger afternoon tea.
Colourful, fun, unique — this sums up The Megaro, where rooms are compact but bursting with personality, much like many a furry friend. You can’t miss this place, with its multicoloured mural, and dogs are provided for with three packages, Love Pup, Buster & Bone and Pup Diva.
There’s no smarter base than this for those heading to Buckingham Palace during their trip to the capital. With a striking black and white theme throughout, a “living wall” (made of plants) and passion for sushi and sake, this is something special.
Enjoy the swish design of this modern hotel, just minutes from Aldgate station. Walkies will become an exploration of the City's architecture, with Tower Bridge ten minutes away and the Gherkin and Walkie Talkie about 15.
Plenty of places offer afternoon tea for dogs but few are as colourful, well-received and in such Instagrammable surroundings as this one.
The South Bank is synonymous with art, theatre and cuisine but there’s plenty for pups round here too. Bankside Hotel has helpfully compiled a list of highlights, from the best shops for canine couture to parks where dogs can run off the lead.
