Open every day 9 – 5pm. Entry is free.
Kentish Town City Farm is a local charity that provides opportunities to help people connect with animals, nature and the environment. We are an educational resource for city children to learn about animal physiology, where food comes from and the natural world. Members of the public, both individuals & groups, are also welcome to visit the farm to see the animals and enjoy a quiet rural space.
The farm covers a four-acre area alongside two railways lines which pass close by the farm. Commuters are often surprised to see farm animals in London! We have about 50 animals, including goats, sheep, 3 horses, ducks, chickens, geese, a pig and a cow, as well as community gardens and a wildlife pond. You might find the animals in their barns or pastures, depending on the time of day and weather. Usually around 4pm visitors can see the animals heading back to their barns from their day areas for feeding. You are welcome to ask staff or volunteers questions about the farm & animals on your visit. Everybody is welcome to drop by and explore the farm, no booking is necessary.
KTCF is wheelchair accessible and seating areas offer visitors a chance to rest and enjoy the views. Accessible toilet facilities are also available.
Health & Safety notices are posted around the farm for your advice & guidance when near farm animals. Hand washing facilities are available on the yard.
Visitor donations are also very welcome (pop your donation into our red post box on the farmyard).
The Farm offers several options for organisations working with children. Booking is essential for all visiting schools & groups wishing to access these programmes.
Outdoor Learning – see details of our very popular educational programme for schools.
Tours of the Farm – available during the school holidays to visiting groups.
Riding Opportunities – available for groups of children during holiday times.
Health & Safety – Before bringing your group please go to Visit My Farm to download the updated 2015 Code of Practice – Essential Advice to Teachers and Others who organise visits for children. Please ensure your group organiser reads the advice to reduce potential risks when visiting farms.
