Dog-Friendly Places on Oxford Road

Oxford Road is the corridor between Manchester City Centre and the hub of the Universities.

Popular with the young, inspired people of Manchester, with the centre of it revolving around music, art and individuality. Another great thing about Oxford Road is that it is dog MAD!

Pretty much every shop, cafe and restaurant will allow you to experience Oxford Road with your pooch! Have a great day out in the City Centre and head to Oxford Road with your furry best friend.

It’s worth bearing in mind that Oxford Road is a busy area of Manchester and these locations can get a little busy for your dog in the late evening on a weekend. Use your best judgement before visiting.
