Overview
More
Vauxhall City Farm is a little piece of the countryside right in the heart of London with all the sights, smells, sounds and experiences of rural life. Our collection of friendly animals includes rare breed sheep, inquisitive goats, woolly alpacas and spotty pigs, not to mention our cuddly ferrets, rabbits and guinea pigs and more! Since 1976 we've been a charity that aims to provide the local community with education services, youth activities, riding therapy, personal development and support programmes and a peaceful escape from city life. Although we don't charge an entry fee we do rely on donations from our visitors to help fund the charity and its' work. The farm and our lovely Old Dairy Cafe are both open from 10:30 - 4:00, Tuesday to Sunday, with the Cafe only also being open from 11:00 - 14:00 most Mondays for lunch. We can't wait to welcome you to the farm come and visit us and our lovely friendly animals soon!

I really liked this mini-farm. The animals are nice and the farm co-operates with schools to give kids an opportunity to grow up chicks. Also, you can ride a horse, if you want. If you want to get a taste of living on a farm,...More
