Mudchute Farm and Park

Time Out says

These 32 acres on the Isle of Dogs make up one of London’s biggest farms. Mudchute Farm's main attraction is the Equestrian Centre, a riding school with an all-weather arena and show jumps. Good news is the ever-popular café recently reopened and is still serving brilliant breakfasts.

The farm itself is surprisingly compact with some animals just wandering about in the fields, plus a petting zoo and duck pond. Some of the best residents include a Manx Loaghtan named Juliet (it’s a type of sheep, duh) and a turkey who enjoys hearing ‘Old MacDonald Had a Farm’. The alpacas, Clause and Columbus, have better manners than their long-faced llama cousins, who have a tendency to spit. Charming.

Farm events include crafting and exercise boot camps (for humans) and agility classes (for dogs). There’s also a greenhouse full of seasonal veggies grown by local children at after-school clubs. If you can grab tickets, head to the super-popular summer party, which last year involved welly throwing, sheep racing, scarecrow dressing and a hog roast. Miriam Bouteba
