  A tour bus designed for dogs and their owners has appeared in the streets of London recently. Owners and their pets are invited to experience a sightseeing trip on the bus around the city

  The bus takes its passengers to some of London’s best parks and dog-walking spots, including Hyde Park and Green Park. It also drives past a number of places of interest with a connection to dogs. Owners can get off the bus at these places and take their dog for a walk there.

  Along the bus tour, live commentary on the bus will tell dog owners about London’s rich history about dogs. When the bus is driving past Buckingham Palace, you might hear: “Queen Elizabeth II has owned more than 30 corgis (柯基犬) during her reign so far.”

  Owners will also be provided with a map. It gives information about dog-friendly bars and restaurants in the area. Owners and their pets can eat something together after their walk.

  The tour bus runs three times every day, from Monday to Thursday. To book a seat for you and your dog, visit www.billetto.co.uk.
