Interact with cute dogs without spending a penny.Soon corgis will be everywhere as we near the Jubilee weekend, in celebration of the Queen. Her Majesty herself has owned corgis since she was 18 and refers to them as being part of the ‘family’. Now an interactive experience celebrating this idea is coming to London ’s Leadenhall Market. Royalists and dog fans can pose for pictures with real corgis in a pop-up photo studio.
As well as a corgi, the booth will come with royal-themed costume pieces – such as tiaras – so you can dress up and feel as regal as the dogs taking part.
This will be set to a quintessentially British backdrop, including a cosy and plush floral sofa to sit on next to your furry friend. There’s no need to book and it’s free for anyone to do on June 1, 12-6pm in the Victorian food and drink market.As well as the ‘Corgi Cam’ pop-up, Leadenhall Market will also host walking tours to educate Londoners on the market’s link to the monarchy – which goes back to the 12th century.
Create Your Own Doggie First Aid Kit. You never know when an accident might happen so it’s recommended to have a first aid kit on hand just in case. Here’s a great list of basic items a pet first aid kit should have.
The market’s alleyways lined by restaurants, shops and bars will get the Jubilee update too, with a royal purple colour scheme and flowers.
This is a copycat version of the kind made by Greenies.
Royalists will be able to make a day of it, with fun photo opportunities and good social spots.
