Dog Friendly Indoor Rainy Day Activities

Updated: Oct 17, 2022

As the weather starts to change, it often becomes quite difficult to find something to do that is indoors or a bit warmer with the children and dogs. Dog walkers are often equipped with the latest waterproofs and we can handle all weathers, however sometimes it is nice to seek refuge inside on those cold and rainy days.

From Museums to Aquariums - Here is our top 10 list:

Go for pancakes and waffles - The Cabin in Sheffield is the perfect rainy day activity for filling those bellies. Choose from a wide range of flavours and toppings and enjoy some comfort food with the dog close by too.

Play some games - The Treehouse Board Game Cafe is super dog friendly and has the widest range of board games available to choose from, maybe suited to older children. In addition, try building some Lego at the Brick Corner Cafe in Buxton, perfect for all ages.

Visit a garden centre - Dobbies and Wentworth are often popular among our community and include fish feeding and cafes

Small animals and indoor play - at Willow Springs pet and play centre in Chesterfield. Lots of things to do (indoor games, amusements, soft play) and dog friendly (except soft play). Even an outdoor sandpit if its dry. Or just pop along to see the parrot, reptiles and fish on display.

Try a Museum - The Yorkshire Air Museum is the perfect trip out for the airplane obsessed children. But if planes aren't your thing, what about the Crich Tramway museum in Matlock instead or the National Stone Centre for those budding geologists. All dog friendly.

Learn a bit of History - Transport yourself back to the world war era with a day trip to Eden Camp modern history theme museum. And all dog friendly.

Visit the caves - at Mother Shiptons for a fun day out involving all the family

Explore a castle and ruins - Explore Conisbrough Castle as you venture in and out of the ruins, all dog friendly. Some bits outdoor so may need your wellies.

Pub lunch - Sometimes comfort food is the best, head to the Old Horns in Bradfield for delicious food and some light activity for children (often activity books, crayons etc provided) and dog friendly.

See some animals - Fancy seeing some fish? Matlock Bath Aquarium is the perfect spot and dog friendly too.

Fancy a train ride? - Middleton Railway in Leeds is the oldest working railway in the ENTIRE world. They have an inclusive 'all dogs are welcome policy', and the whole place is great fun for the kids! Or Kirklees Light Railway is also super dog friendly.
