Farm life - mudchute farm

A few weeks back we decided to go to a farm and after hearing great things about it, we decided to head to Mudchute Farm in East London. We live over in SE London so for us it was a train to Lewisham and then the DLR to Crossharbour (it's a short walk from the station).

Driving the DLR
Upon arriving we walked through the parkland with the docklands skyline behind us and arrived at the penned areas. The farm itself isn't massive but considering its situated in the heart of Isle of Dogs, it's big enough. The biggest bonus is that it is free, so makes a great day out for families where budget is an issue.

The animals are all accessible and it's got a mixture of pigs, goats, horses, sheep and Llama to see. We walked around for a while and the sky's threatened to open so we headed to the onsite cafe, Mudchute Kitchen, and got ourselves a big breakfast. The food was lovely and it gave us a chance to sit in the warm for a while. There are also areas to sit outside with a picnic but it really wasn't the weather for it when we visited.

There are stables on site too and you can watch people getting their horses ready to go out hacking in the surrounding area.

Imagine my surprise when Bubba decided that she wanted to keep visiting some animals near pets corner and even give them a cuddle. Yes that's right, the bit she most loved about the visit was the penguin bins and requested that her photo be taken with them.

I would definitely recommend going to Mudchute Farm, Hubby and I enjoyed being out in the fresh air and introducing Bubba to the animals (including the penguin bins!). It's very well set up and run and there are plenty of things to see and do.
