Spitalfields City Farm

KidRated’s Spitalfields City Farm Top Tips:

  • Wash your hands!
  • Bring your wellies
  • Why not buy some of their great free range eggs?

A stones through away from the bustling Brick Lane, watched over by the towers of the City and beside the constant rumble of the Overground lies Spitalfields City Farm. A somewhat unexpected treat, the farm houses all kinds of animals from bees to cows and everything in between. There is also a garden and greenhouse.


On Saturdays kids can join in the fun with the Wild Club. Here kids between the ages of 4 and 12 can learn all about farm-life. Check out the wild club blog to find out more about what the kids get up to.


The farmyard animals are the main attraction but the different gardens are also great to wander around. On weekends there is a café, and all the proceeds go back into the upkeep of the farm. There is also a playground for less animal loving kids.


If your kids have been begging you to get a pet, come to Spitalfields City Farm and get acquainted with the rabbits, ferrets and guinea pigs, as well as the really cute cats wandering around.

Booking Advice:

Parent Point of View

About London Laura Porter

Laura Porter

  • This is a lovely little city farm and a visit can be combined with a trip to Brick Lane or Spitalfields Market for shopping, or Columbia Road Flower Market on a Sunday.
  • As well as Wild Club for the kids, they welcome family volunteering on Saturdays so you can learn together.
  • 13-18 year olds can do regular volunteering on Sundays.
  • When the Tea Hut is shut do go to Rinkoff Bakery on Vallance Road as they sell crodoughs (croissant/doughnuts) which
    ​are​ sooo good!
