Time Out says

Hounslow Urban Farm’s history stretches back more than two decades, but it was on the brink of closure three years ago, before it was taken over by eco-warrior father and daughter, Alice and Tony. Every animal on the farm has been rescued and the pair work closely with the RSPCA.

The farm is home to exotic animals including snakes, lizards and tarantulas, as well as a faster-than-normal tortoise called Becks. Birdie the cockatoo arrived with hardly any feathers, but after 16 years of care is a picture of noisy health. Horses Trevor and Gizmo recently moved in after being found abandoned in a local field.

Instead of growing veg like most city farms, there are plans to sow wildflower meadows over its 29 acres, in keeping with the eco-friendly theme.

Activities on offer include egg hunts, unmissable pig racing and a big ol’ bouncy castle. What’s more, if you’re looking for a new roomie, you can rehome one of the animal guests.
