Anything else I should know? There’s no visitor parking so travel by public transport if you can. Most areas of the farm are accessible by wheelchair but some paths can get muddy.
More often than not urban animal sightings are limited to bin-diving foxes and sour-looking cats. But it doesn’t have to be this way. You may not think it, but London is actually home to a surprising amount of city farms filled with a whole load of livestock to see up close – from lazing llamas in Canary Wharf to energetic goats in Kentish Town and rare breed sheep off the Holloway Road.
City farms aren’t just a great way to meet some new furry friends, lots of them also have fantastic farm shops that offer all sorts of locally made, fresh produce and put on a whole range of activities and workshops. Lots are also local charities and they also double as good picnic spots. So get yourself a lovely slice of country life, without having to go beyond the M25.
