Treat Your Dog This National Picnic Month

With July being National Picnic Month and the sun finally putting in an appearance, there’s no better time to head outside for some al fresco food.

And who says picnics are just for people? This summer, treat your faithful canine companion to a unique dining experience here at DUKES London:

Let Fido Celebrate National Picnic Month in Style

The perfect excuse to embrace the great outdoors and these sporadic bursts of British summer sun, National Picnic Month is almost upon us.

Across the country, people are encouraged to lay down their blankets, unpack their baskets, and savour the simple pleasures of dining in the open air.

This year, we’re here to make sure the fun can be shared with your furry four-legged friends.

A Dog-Friendly Picnic Experience at DUKES

Given our beloved mascot DUKESY is a Dachshund, it’s a no-brainer for us to help families spend a lovely day out in London’s dog-friendly parks with their canine companions.

Nestled in the heart of Mayfair, our luxury hotel is just a stone’s throw away from two of London’s most famous Royal Parks: Green Park and St James’s Park.

Our offering is the DUKES Dog Picnic, which includes two fun toys and a duo of wet and dry food. Your dog will be kept busy whilst you relax and enjoy the scenic surroundings!

Each picnic from DUKES London comes complete with a comfy rug, cutlery, and optional special touches such as flowers, truffles, or additional bottles of champagne. These little details make sure your picnic is not just enjoyable, but also memorable.

“Picnicking is a real British tradition,” our General Manager Michael Purtill shared, “ and being situated in such close proximity to two of London’s Royal Parks, we wanted to give people the opportunity to really enjoy the experience and make it a little bit special.

Our picnics have something for everyone. So, if you don’t have a dog, you can treat your children, partner, or just yourself to some rest and relaxation this summer.”
