If it’s a look into the history of the area that appeals to you, the Lake District has a number of dog friendly museums and castles for you to explore. Many are contained within stunning grounds offering the perfect opportunity for a dog walk during your visit.
Lowther Castle - for over fifty years an abandoned ruin - is rapidly becoming one of the Lake District's most popular visitor attractions. Gardens, exhibition, café, shop and the castle itself, sited in a stunning landscape. Dogs (on leads) are welcome everywhere except the adventure playground and the cake table. Wags & Tails, a doggy jamboree weekend, takes place annually at the end of September.
Muncaster Gardens really are doggy heaven; with miles of paths which wind their way through more than 70 acres of wild, woodland garden and full of exciting smells and interesting corners to explore.
