New Dog Friendly Guide Launches In Lincoln

Visit Lincoln is launching a new dog friendly online guide with the RSPCA, building on the good work already being done by Lincoln Castle’s ‘Dog-Friendly’ weekend.

The guide ( gives advice on dog friendly things to do, events, places to eat and drink, and stay across the city which means you don’t have to leave your pooch behind, plus extras such as information on local veterinary centres and pet shops.

“It is great to be able to work with RSPCA Lincolnshire”, said Lydia Rusling, Chief Executive at Visit Lincoln. “Not only can we help promote their fundraising events such as the dog friendly weekends at Lincoln Castle, but we can also use their knowledge and expertise to enhance the welcome we give dog owners and share advice with tourism businesses to make the visit really enjoyable.

“It’s really important that we listen to what visitors want and need, so when we found out a frequently asked question at the Visitor Information Centre was ‘where can I take my dog’ we knew we had to do something”.

Amy Clarkson, Volunteer Fundraising and Events Coordinator at RSPCA Lincolnshire, added: “We’re delighted to have teamed up with Visit Lincoln as one of their charity partners, and are extremely excited for the dog-friendly days planned here in Lincoln”.

The Dog Friendly Weekend at Lincoln Castle is on this weekend, Saturday 17th to Sunday 18 of November. It is the perfect event for dog owners and their furry companions; from the Medieval Wall Walk to the Prison Cells, it’s a trip you and your pooch will be unlikely to forget!

Entry to the grounds is free and a Castle Day Ticket includes admission to the Medieval Wall Walk, Victorian Prison and David P J Ross Magna Carta Vault. Dogs must be kept on leads at all times.
