What a surprise to find a real farm minutes away from central London and its skyscrapers! Very friendly donkeys, hens, and ducks are welcoming you in the courtyard as soon as you enter. You can also buy self-produced eggs, to help and sustain the farm....More

Charming farm in London. All the animals seem well kept, happy and the pens are clean. Geese and hens are wander among you free-range and it's very peaceful and relaxing. Lovely friendly staff on the farm and in the gift shop.

It was great to come across this working farm in the busy streets of London. A great place to bring children to learn and escape from city life.

Cycled from central London to the farm in about 20mins and felt like I was in the countryside somewhere! Took a stroll through the cobblestone yard where the chickens and geese roam free - very very tranquil, unlike central London. Then had time for a...More

Even on a cold autumn day the animals were out and about. The geese, ducks and chickens wander around and are very friendly. Suitable for young kids but older children may get bored quickly.

Tucked in the borough of Tower Hamlet is a little working farm. The farm has the usual complement of farm animals: chickens (running loose in the yard), rabbits, a pair of donkeys, a pair of pigs, and such. Little kids will love it, adults will...More
