These 32 acres on the Isle of Dogs make up one of London’s biggest farms. Mudchute Farm's main attraction is the Equestrian Centre, a riding school with an all-weather arena and show jumps. Good news is the ever-popular café recently reopened and is still serving brilliant breakfasts.
The farm itself is surprisingly compact with some animals just wandering about in the fields, plus a petting zoo and duck pond. Some of the best residents include a Manx Loaghtan named Juliet (it’s a type of sheep, duh) and a turkey who enjoys hearing ‘Old MacDonald Had a Farm’. The alpacas, Clause and Columbus, have better manners than their long-faced llama cousins, who have a tendency to spit. Charming.
Farm events include crafting and exercise boot camps (for humans) and agility classes (for dogs). There’s also a greenhouse full of seasonal veggies grown by local children at after-school clubs. If you can grab tickets, head to the super-popular summer party, which last year involved welly throwing, sheep racing, scarecrow dressing and a hog roast. Miriam Bouteba

my granddaughters and I have spent MANY happy hours here . they love the fact that they can feed the animals with the made - up bags of food for sale in the little shop . the cafe is lovely .fresh , good quality food and ample space to enjoy it ! i LOVE THIS PLACE ! :)
The farm is great, but one should know that waiting lists for horse-riding lessons are extremely long and not worth the wait. :(
