World's first bus tour for dogs is coming to London

This month pet insurer MORE TH>N is introducing a free sightseeing tour for adventurous canines in the capital.

The tour will include London's best dog-friendly spaces including Hyde Park, Kensington Palace Gardens and Green Park, where tourists can disembark the bus for a stroll if they choose. An onboard commentary will give owners a lesson in London's canine history, including Buckingham Palace's Corgis and the ministerial dogs of Downing Street.

At the end of the 90-minute route, owners will be given leaflets of dog-friendly bars, pubs and restaurants where they and their four-legged best friend can refuel.

The tours have been created to launch the pet insurer's new service DOGGYESSENTI>LS, which delivers essential items for a happy and healthy dog direct to your door each month. To celebrate the launch, every dog owner joining the bus tour will be gifted a travel-size version of the MORE TH>N DOGGYSSENTI>LS box, containing treats and throwing balls.

The London tour bus for dogs will be running January 17-19, with three tours a day leaving from Lambeth Bridge (north side), SE1 7SG. Reserve your place here.
