Discover Dog-Friendly venues and walks in Newbury Town Centre with a new Map
Newbury Business Improvement District launch a brand new ‘Dog-Friendly’ trail map in time for National Dog Day
Newbury Business Improvement District (BID) is thrilled to support the local hospitality sector with the launch of its brand-new Newbury Dog-Friendly Trail Map.
The handy pocket map has launched online in advance of National Dog Day on 26th August, to help raise awareness of Newbury’s dog-friendly venues to a vast and growing audience of dog-owners either residing in the local area or visiting the town centre, while simultaneously supporting the national and independently owned cafes, coffee shops, pubs, and eateries.
Physical copies of the map are due to be distributed in matching display boxes to all 20 independent businesses and some of the national brands featured, as well as at the 48 independent businesses included on the Independent Retail Map, previously launched in July for Independents’ Day UK.
The Dog-Friendly map includes a brief description of each venue and is set to become a useful resource for dog owners to discover the best dog-walking routes within walking distance of the town centre, while signposting to dog-waste bins in and around the area to encourage keeping Newbury clean and tidy.
You can view the map online here: visitnewbury.org.uk/maps.
The themed maps produced by the BID are the second in a series of town centre maps for Newbury under the umbrella term ‘Newbury Town Trail Maps’. Downloadable copies of the physical maps and interactive versions of the Town Trails can be found online here: visitnewbury.org.uk/maps.
Newbury BID, the not-for-profit organisation behind the Visit Newbury brand, is delighted to announce a further map in the series will also be released late summer / early autumn, this time sporting a Vegan-Friendly theme.
This map will promote 59 vegan-friendly businesses extending from hospitality to retail and hair and beauty venues across the town centre.
The third map in the Newbury Town Trail Map series due to launch this year will be an up-to-date and reformatted version of the Vegan-friendly Map.
First launched in October last year, the updated map is due to be released around the year anniversary of the initial launch and will come in the new fold-out pocket-sized format.

Dog Friendly Trail for Newbury
Kirsty Lemberger, Marketing Manager at Newbury BID, says:
“We’re so pleased with our Dog-Friendly Trail maps and hope the handy pocket-sized format will encourage dog-walkers to use the map on a regular basis to locate dog waste bins in the town centre and enjoy exploring new dog-walking routes in the area.
The aim of our beautifully illustrated pocket guides and online interactive Town Trails is to help support our local businesses and raise the profile of our wonderful town centre.
Launching our Dog-Friendly Map in line with the nationally recognised ‘National Dog Day’ will help to increase awareness further while supporting a cause important to dog-lovers in West Berkshire and beyond!”
Maps are available to collect across the town centre at most businesses featured on the map, and from Newbury Library, West Berkshire Museum, and in the Old Town Hall.
