What do you do with your four-legged friend when you want to go away? You bring them with you to Brighton of course! With dog friendly accommodation and restaurants plan a holiday the whole family can enjoy.

This suggested itinerary is for a 2 night stay.

Arrive in Brighton with your four-legged friend, ready to relax and enjoy the city.

Stay at the Old Ship Hotel, we love The Old Ship because:

  • It's just a 5-minute walk from Brighton Palace Pier, The Lanes and the city’s bars and restaurants
  • It is one of the oldest hotels in the city
  • It has an enviable seafront location
  • Comfy rooms, perfect to enjoy after a long day exploring

After your journey, stretch your legs on the seafront and have a seaside stroll together either on the promenade or if you visit between 1 October to 30 April on any beach. The rest of the year, dogs are only permitted on beaches listed as dog-friendly beaches so get to know those before you arrive if your pooch likes the beach.

Now you’ve got some good sea air in your lungs, it’s time to head back to the hotel and prepare for your evening out.

Later, dine out at the new resident restaurant at Selina hotel on Brighton’s seafront – Tlaloc. Stripping away all the stereotypes of Mexican cuisine, Tlaloc serves authentic, fresh tasty food in a relaxed welcoming atmosphere, including dogs of course.

Day One

Awake refreshed and ready to explore the stunning Sussex countryside, head into the countryside towards East Chiltington taking in the stunning views on the way.

Nestled at the foot of the South Downs National Park, The Jolly Sportsman has been serving some of the best food and wine in Sussex for more than 20 years. This is the perfect spot to grab some lunch and relax with a drink (and a bowl for your canine companion) after a walk out in the countryside.

Head back to the city and either grab a drink in one of the many cafés or if you prefer The Old Ship hotel has outside seating to enjoy a sundowner.

Saunter over to med. Brighton for some small plates, with big Mediterranean flavour. From the moment you sit down, go on a journey as their thoughtfully curated seasonal menu evolves and delivers the highest quality produce in a fun, innovative way. 

After dinner take a leisurely stroll back to the hotel for a restful night’s sleep.  

Day Two

It wouldn’t be a holiday without a spot of shopping and why should your doggo not be included in the fun? Head to Bone Idol, a pet owner's paradise in one of the oldest shopping streets in Brighton, St James’s Street. As an independent dog groomers and pet shop, they just love dogs! The shop is packed full of amazing products from the UK and all over the world so treat your woofer to some new toys or a trim if they need it.

Now your dog has had a pamper, it’s time for some human retail therapy, head to the North Laine area for unique independent boutique shops.

Pop into the Dorset pub for a spot of lunch, whether you're just nipping in for a drink or to enjoy a full, hearty menu of restaurant-quality fine dining plates – they’ve got you covered. Plus they specialise in Sussex ales, with a host of craft beers as well as fine wines and speciality gins.

Finish the day with a relaxing walk along the seafront so everyone has a chance to really stretch their legs (both two and four legged members of the family). Finish at the Big Beach Café, make like Benny the Bichonfrise and grab a drink while there.
