Surrey Docks Farm
All the animals on this 2.2 acre city farm on the south bank of the river Thames in Rotherhithe are organically reared. Donkeys, goats and sheep make you feel as though you've stepped into the countryside even though you're in an 18th century shipyard. Children can meet the animals - including cattle, pigs, ducks, geese, chickens, turkeys and the very friendly goats - and learn all about farming including making honey and beeswax through special projects, events and
workshops. It's the only city farm in London with a working forge where blacksmiths run educational workshops and give demonstrations
creating beautiful objects out of metal. After talking to the animals you can relax at the Frizzante cafe or pick up some homemade jam at the farm shop which also sells fresh food produced in the various green and horticultural areas around the farm - at the orchard, herb garden and vegetable plots. Take the riverside Thames Path walk or the Thames Clipper for the most scenic route to Surrey Docks City Farm.
