Walk to the farm. Cows, pigs, horses, llamas, chickens, sheep on the meadows... a whiff of muck - all in a city. Kids tours organized. There is a cafe with lovely cake.

The most tranquil place you could find in the middle of a concrete jungle! You can go there for breakfast/lunch, take a horse riding lesson, visit the in house animals, or simply to take a break!

One of the best of London’s city farms, if only for the incongruous vista of grazing cows and sheep juxtaposed against the looming skyscrapers of Canary Wharf.

This farm is a great place for a day out for young and old. Entry is free and spring is a good time to go as that's the time when the young animals are born. Unsurprisingly I've seen groups of scho... read more

Take your kids to a farm right in the middle of East London, this is probably the central most farm in the city where you can see farm animals, buy organic food and relax in a local cafe.

Lovely little riverside city farm with pigs, cattle, goats and other animals and a very good (though a little pricey in our opinion) cafe restaurant - good quality food.

This path is part of the historic new river that brought water into London, now a peaceful oasis for wildlife, trees including swamp cypress and dawn redwood. You can still see part of the original... read more

A 20-min walk away gives you a walk through the woods with meandering paths, a folly, a bat cave and loads of happy wandering.

Not a large wood but Dulwich is fortunately very green for a London suburb and if you want to go forage in the woods this is the place to go.
