How to travel with your dog in London

London life has lots to offer, whether you live here or if you’re just visiting. But the thing we love the most is how dog-friendly it is!

You can easily make it from A to B with your dog using various modes of transport and your journey can be made simple by planning ahead.

London Underground

TfL allow well-behaved dogs on all of their transportation and navigating the Underground with your pet has now been made simple, thanks to our handy map which shows you where and how you can get off at stations around the city!


If you’re looking to explore the city above ground, then hopping on the train may be the better option for you and pooch. Trains are usually a little less crowded and have the added benefit of enabling you to see the views of London.?


Black cabs are often pet-friendly, depending on if your driver is happy for your pet to be in their cab. Apps like Addison Lee, which has an option to order a pet-friendly car, also make it incredibly easy to travel with your dog around the capital.

Travel in the heat

We also have some top advice on how to travel with your four-legged friend in the heat, ensuring that their safety and welfare are put first!

We provide free pet advice as every pet deserves to be well looked after. We treated around 35,000 sick injured and homeless pets last year. We're so glad we've been able to help these pets who are unable to help themselves, but there are thousands of sick and lonely pets still in need, so we need to ask for a small favour.

All of our work is funded entirely through donations. People like you are essential to our work. If everyone who benefits from our articles is able to give a little back, we can reach thousands more pets. For as little as £1 you can make a difference - do you have one minute? Thank you.
