Beautiful Oakham is a historic town in England's smallest county of Rutland, which is in the East Midlands. Oakham is twenty five miles away from the city of Leicester. Oakham is one of my favourite places to spend an afternoon, it's like stepping back in time. The town's history is incredible, and the beauty of the town is picture postcard, an English town at its finest. It's a treat to go there and enjoy everything it has to offer.
To me York is an incredibly special place. I have been many times. Beginning in my childhood, first on a school trip, where we spent the afternoon exploring the Castle, which was so much fun. Then my next visit was on a family holiday, we took a boat trip on the River Ouse, and had a blast at Jorvik Viking Centre; I will tell you about this blast of a place later!
Abbey Park is located on Abbey Park Road, Leicester. It's a public park, owned and managed by Leicester City Council. It's a mile away from Leicester's busy city centre, which is easily walkable to reach; around a 25 minute walk, or there are bus routes that are available too. The park is free entry, and it closes at 8 PM.
Yes it is no secret, I adore dogs! All dogs, every single breed, but when it comes to my favourite breed, it is Labradors all the way for me. Over the years my red-fox Labrador, Lola, and I, have had many adventures and fun times together. We have visited many places, and it is always wonderful to discover a place that is dog friendly and welcoming. It will be an absolute joy to share mine and Lola's favourite places, which are well worth a visit, and are a treat for your dog, as well as yourself.
