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 farmhouses all kinds of animals from bees to cows and everything in between. There is also a garden and a 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.
