DOG owners can now pick up a 'woof' guide, giving them ideas for some fun days out in Worcester with their furry friends. 

The leaflets are available at the Tourist Information Centre in the city's Guildhall and they detail some of the top places for locals and visitors to take their dogs for walks and a list of dog-friendly places to eat and drink. 

Tourist Information Centre manager, Ruth Smith, said: “There is so much to see and enjoy in Worcester – we have beautiful walks, picturesque parks, and a wealth of excellent places to eat and drink.

"We’re very much a dog-friendly city and our new guide provides a perfect companion to anyone wishing to explore the area with their pets.”

Suitable riverside and canalside walks are listed in the leaflet, as well as outings to places such as Cripplegate Park, Fort Royal Park, Gheluvelt Park and Worcester Woods Park, the latter two also having dog-friendly cafés.

A handy map is included, along with details of parking in the area.

But the leaflet isn’t just about walks, it also lists over 90 pubs, bars, restaurants and coffee shops which either allow dogs inside or outside the premises while their owners are enjoying a drink or a meal.
