Spectacular green spaces

London’s beautifully maintained gardens and Royal Parks invite long, satisfying walks in nature. Energetic canines and their owners staying at The Egerton have easy access to the lush gardens flanking Kensington Palace as well as the leafy sprawl of Hyde Park. Areas where dogs should be kept on a lead are well signposted, but there are plenty of broad stretches where the four-legged are free to run. Allow our knowledgeable Pet Concierge to tailor the most scenic route according to your pet’s size and energy levels.

Culinary indulgences

London for dogs doesn’t get more delicious than The Egerton’s indulgent Doggy Afternoon Tea. The menu is curated especially for discerning canines, and includes a tiered stand piled high with delicious treats, including our special vitamin-rich Doggylicious ice cream and nutritious homemade dog biscuits. There’s even a bowl of Rosé Pawsecco to wash everything down. Meanwhile, a feast of freshly baked scones, delicate cakes and dainty finger sandwiches are the order of the day for attendant owners.

Chic canine boutiques

Deluxe dog-walking attire and cute pets’ accessories are in high demand, and meeting that demand is a plethora of ingeniously stocked pet boutiques across London, including Hyde Park Pet Boutique and Purplebone. Knightsbridge, just steps away from The Egerton, is lined with London’s most prestigious flagships and retail emporiums. Crowning them all is celebrated department store Harrods, whose pet department bristles with covetable canine activewear and gorgeous pets’ accessories.

First-rate pet pampering

We always roll out the red carpet for furry guests at The Egerton, with our services including a pet welcome massage, toys, treats and dog-sitting. Head off solo to visit one of London’s many museums or high-end restaurants, and rest assured your little darling is in great hands. Come mealtimes, our thoughtful pet menus cater for dogs of all shapes and sizes. Think a mineral-rich smoothie to start the day, while beef tenderloin makes for a mouth-watering evening meal.
