Fantastic local farm in Rotherhithe, Southwark (not Tower Hamlets). Lots to see. Great animal experiences. Lovely little shop. All watched over by lovely chatty staff and volunteers. A great place for children, families, couples, singles - Everyone! New cafe operator serves up some lovely specials,chatter cakes and coffee in a delightful farmland setting. Bliss!

Nestled on the Thames Path, Surrey Docks Farm is a rural delight only a few moments from the mayhem of Surrey Quays shopping centre. After an arson attack in 2010, the farm is back to full strength, noticeable in the happy animals, flourishing gardens and well-kept grounds. There is also a new café, a little sister to Hackney City Farm’s Frizzante, with the same great food but more chance of a seat. The farm is bustling and busy with daily donkey rides, plus various projects such as a monthly market, yoga, massage, a blacksmith’s forge, allotments, mobile farm and more.

A city farm in London with lots of community involvement, what a splendid place! long may it continue. Check out Surrey Docks farm website lots of things going on .
This is a fantastic place to visit. I live nearby and regularly go there for the great cafe and to see the animals. They also offer interesting workshops sometimes. I did a one day introduction to bee-keeping which was brilliant.
This City Farm feels like an actual farm and not a mini zoo like some of the others. They do great things for people with learning disabilities too! Great place.
