Went here on a Sunday, was very cute. Quite a few animals to look at, including some baby goats. It's free to enter, and you can buy fresh eggs(£1.20 for 6). The cafe serves good food.

Was nice to walk through but it tiny and not many animals. Nice to see this is sticking around with all the building work taking place around, gives a bit of tranquility and nature to a very urban area.

What a surprise to find a real farm minutes away from central London and its skyscrapers! Very friendly donkeys, hens, and ducks are welcoming you in the courtyard as soon as you enter. You can also buy self-produced eggs, to help and sustain the farm....More

We went I think on a quiet day, as the only animals about were the donkeys and the chickens. The farm shop was closed as well so we didn't stay too long. Would like to return in the summer, and hope more animals would be...More

Charming farm in London. All the animals seem well kept, happy and the pens are clean. Geese and hens are wander among you free-range and it's very peaceful and relaxing. Lovely friendly staff on the farm and in the gift shop.

I love going to this farm. I always persuade my younger niece to come along with me. There's a great variety of animals here. I love the fact the chicken and ducks walk around freely. You can also buy fresh eggs from here. There's also...More

Not my favourite city farm, but we really enjoyed retreating into the gardens. Although minimalistic, they're quite spectacularly peaceful. (The cat scratched my son, so he wasn't too thrilled)
