Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Across the Thames from the toil of Canary Wharf, the charming little Surrey Docks Farm spreads over 2.2 acres. One of London’s first city farms, it was established in the late ’70s when locals began to grow and harvest their own produce.

Resident animals range from tiny buzzing bees, big clattering cattle and everything in between. Kiera is a sassy miniature Shetland pony who sounds as though she has a touch of small-person syndrome.

The farm boasts a manner of seasonal root and climbing veggies. Plenty of scrummy fresh produce is on sale in the farm shop.

What’s not to like about walking a donkey along the Thames path across the river from the financial district? There are also ceramic lessons, beekeeping classes and an onsite forge where Kevin the blacksmith runs metalworking taster sessions. Miriam Bouteba
