Our dog-friendly Club Quarters Hotel near St. Paul’s is convenient to several nearby parks and eateries that will welcome your furry friends.
The Imperial Dog Park at Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park is far and away our favorite option for canine fun. It’s 13 minutes by car, about 20 by tube and about a half hour on foot. The park surrounds the Imperial War Museum and is also home to the Tibetan Peace Memorial Garden. Best of all, it includes a dog agility course.
Myatt’s Fields Park is a 22-minute car ride, and about a half-hour by tube. What we like about it: The enclosure is safe for large and small breeds, with no escape routes, as the tall fence is outfitted with a mesh net. This expansive park includes two benches and a dog waste bin.
Pasley Park is a well-maintained dog park about 20 minutes by car or tube, and 45 minutes on foot. It includes three fully enclosed exercise areas varying in size, each with benches and dog waste bins.

Enjoy fairly standard bar fare on Smith & Whistle’s food menu. Get there in 4 minutes by car, 10 by tube or 15 minutes on foot.
