Mudchute Farm and Park

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

A stones throw away from Canary Wharf, this is a great family day out. It's free, which is always a bonus and it's very kid friendly, you can feed the animals and also book horse riding classes. There's a cafe on site and the breakfast and cakes are delicious!

Being a country bumpkin at heart, sometimes in the midst of the black smoke and skyscrapers of London, I yearn for some fresh air and a touch of nature- if this sounds like you, head to Mudchute Farm and get your farmyard fix!


With the backdrop of the iconic Canary Wharf, Mudchute really epitomises the urban farm. With horses, llamas, alpaccas, donkeys, pigs, sheep and a menagerie of exotic birds and smaller animals, there is plenty to see. The best way to experience the animals is to buy some feed for a very reasonable 50p and go and make some furry friends. If you aren't an animal lover, the beautiful surroundings are ideal for a long walk, one which isn't confined to roads and pavements. And to refuel after your trek? Head to the cafe for a scrummy cake, all at purse friendly prices.


With its free entry and easy accessibility from the City, Mudchute is the perfect day out for the family or for a childless early twenty-something with a love for goats.

The farm is great, but one should know that waiting lists for horse-riding lessons are extremely long and not worth the wait. :(
