Mudchute Park and Farm
The Mudchute is a community charity and the largest city farm in London, aiming to preserve the natural environment, promote animal welfare and provide education to young people. This farm is free of charge and offers a lovely countryside atmosphere as well as caring for the environment. There is a farm with a range of native and rare breed farm animals, stables, a riding school and lots of educational activities.
Children & Family activities
You can book a Farm Tour where a member of staff will give you a tour around the farm and talk about the livestock. Learn about the range of animals such as cows, pigs, llamas, donkeys and goats, get close with them and even help to feed them! Email email@example.com for bookings, prices and availability. You can also book animal encounter sessions at the Farm for special events or parties such as a children's party where kids can interact with small animals and stroke their fur or feathers.
The riding school at this Farm provides lessons to adults and children over age 7 from beginner's level to advanced level with 25 horses and ponies. Pony Days are a full-day programme for kids during school holidays that include 2 riding sessions and stable management lectures and costs £70 per child plus £1.50 for hat hire (boots are provided for free). Children learn things like grooming and feeding horses as well as other tasks.
Mudchute Kitchen is located in the courtyard with a wonderful view of the horses and sheep. There is a variety of delicious home-cooked foods like their famous English breakfast, brunches as well as cakes and sandwiches. Children can have fun in the new activity area and pets are also welcome here! Click here for updated opening times of the Kitchen. You can also have a nice family picnic in the open space among the nature & animals, bringing your own food and packed lunches.
