Vauxhall Free
You may be surprised to find this compact farm just off the busy main Vauxhall junction, but it has managed to pack in a range of animals, duck pond, ecology garden (complete with bog, wormery and stag beetle nursery) and community allotment, which grows plants used as dyes for the spinning classes that take place on the farm. There is also a riding school with a paddock across the road, which is probably the only place you can keep an eye on MI5 while out for a gallop. Plus the farm’s dedication was recently rewarded with a prize for ‘Commitment to the Community’ and was winner of ‘Business of the Year’ at the Lambeth Business Awards 2011.

Whenever I'm having a tough day or week I visit the farm - it is a genuine London lifeline. There is no therapy available that beats watching a little rabbit being spooned by a giant rabbit, seeing guinea pigs chase each other around their pen or taking a few minutes out of your day to chat to a horse. In my top 5 favourite places in London.


A few years ago I stumbled upon Vauxhall City Farm quite by accident, and what a little gem it is too. Being so close to the centre of the metropolis, its a lovely little piece of countryside on your doorstep. It has a lovely community feel, and a feeling that it is loved, I imagine due to the fact it is there for understanding and education rather than profit. Next time you're in Vauxhall, pop in and say hi to the animals, one of the best ways to de-stress when the city gets too much I find. Just hold your nose when passing the pig enclosure, cute as they are!!

City and farm aren't two words that go together! This place is great however for any city kids that don't get out to the countryside to experience the real deal. It's got all the standards plus some cute llamas with funky hair dos. Free entry is a relief and good hand washing facilities. It won't take long to have a wander round! #TOTastemaker


One of my top favourite free activities t in London. The animals are well looked after, and the staff are delightful and happy to engage with you. Suggest combining this with a trip to the nearby Tea House Theatre for post-farm tea and cake.
