Vauxhall City Farm Vauxhall City Farm is closed from Monday 25th March until Wednesday 10th April 2013. Riding lessons continue as normal.

Vauxhall City Farm was transformed from derelict land in 1977 by a group of eager and dedicated volunteers. Now this 1.5 acre working farm is home to Pango the Pig and DJ the horse as well as over 80 other animals used to being petted and pampered by visitors young and old. Pony-care classes and milking demonstrations are available on request, as well as a range of talks on the farm and lots of hands-on-work with the animals. The farm regularly hosts lively and creative play schemes packed with a range of activities including art workshops using rope, wicker and recycled materials. Workshops, education and training classes are also held at the farm including the Vauxhall City Farm Spinners who cultivate vegetables and plants in the community garden dyestuff to produce hand made yarns for weaving, embroidery and knitting. Certain activities and events are seasonal - at Easter, for example, the cute contingent of baby alpacas and goats are welcomed to their new home on the farm.
