This visit was something of a nostalgic occasion for us and our daughter, so in perfect summer weather, we included a slow stroll around the Christchurch Meadow 'Loop' and ended at the Head of the River pub for a delightful al-fresco lunch.

They most certainly are allowed. We take our dog with us and yes we do keep her on the lead, only because there are ducks and sometimes geese walking freely along the river bank. Hope this helps
