Kentish Town Farm

If you have ever been on the Overground noticed horses near Gospel Oak station, you will have had a sneak peek at Kentish Town City Farm. Tucked in and around the railway, a treasure trove of wildlife unfolds as you explore: goats romp under brick arches, sheep bleat over the whirring of nearby trains and frogs croak in a lively pond. Children are at the heart of the farm, with a range of weekend workshops, an under-fives activity room and a dedicated team of local young volunteers. With councils cutting funding, farms like this will struggle to continue this good work, but they are keeping spirits up with a range of activities, including building a working kiln.

This is perhaps the best of the city farms in London,  though as a concept in general I am still struggling to get my head around it! I arrived very early one Saturday morning to be greeted by an enthusiastic team of children who were obviously with some kind of educational class - both them and the adults who work there seemed very passionate about the animals, with several children quickly trying to tell me everything they knew about the goats I was looking at!  The general atmosphere is very charming and if it wasn't for the train line it would honestly feel a million miles from London.

That was a very sad afternoons visit. The animals are so unhappy. They are kept in small enclosures, sometimes alone, adjacent to a railway track in a Camden housing estate. I don't doubt the volunteers are honest, lovely people but this is no place to keep animals.


it's the most amazing place ever. We love it and the people working there are the most compassionate and kind you'll meet in a long while. Thanks!!


Im planning on visiting England next year and I was looking for family fun activites, thank you so much for having this website for people like me that are traveling to London.


me and my family love animals we grew up around animals.we are planning to come and visit you today.we came before and we loved it so we want to come again.i was so pleased.


This is a five star. It's got it all: urban, rural, farmyard, fun, educational, socially inclusive, relaxing and the kids just LOVE it. Adam's been going there since he was young and now volunteers and he begs to go there claiming it'seven better than the Wii. If you knew how hard he begs to go on the Wii, you'd know that's really saying something. Personally mucking out animals doesn't do it for me, but there is obviously some magic I am missing out of.
