Vauxhall City Farm

165 Tyers St, Lambeth, London SE11 5HS, UK – 020 7582 4204

It was such a great discovery when we found this farm in the outskirts of central London! It's tiny, but there is a good variety of friendly animals who look well looked after and quite eager to greet visitors. If feeding them, make sure you only use seeds provided by the farm. It must be so good for children of the local area to have a farm at walking distance - otherwise they may never have got the chance to see a farm animal in real life! Definitely worth a visit.

Lovely little farm. Not big but it's free and the little ones will love it. Most animals can be petted and fed. Little food pellets can be bought in handfuls from a little dispenser on site. The dispenser takes twenty pence pieces. It's twenty pence for a few kid sized handfuls so be sure to come with a good few 20p pieces,as the little ones and bigger children will enjoy feeding the animals. All proceeds go toward upkeep of farm.
