Visitor Safety Measures
Updated November 4th, 2020
We will remain open on a limited scale with the following measures:
- Limited capacity (1 household or support bubble, max 6 people on site at any one time)
- No indoor activities
- Data collection via booking system for track and trace.
- Three hot water handwashing stations across the site.
- Revised cleaning regime including increased cleaning of toilets.
Booking for private visits is now open via our booking page. Our capacity is massively reduced so priority is for individuals or groups who would not otherwise access green space. If this is you, please book via the booking page or email us email@example.com
A copy of our full COVID Lockdown Information is available here
On a Visit
On arrival, you will be welcomed at the door by a staff member who will review health and safety precautions with you, including hand washing & toilet facilities. Health & Safety notices are posted around the farm for your advice & guidance.
We ask that you do not touch the animals at all. We regret that visitors are unable to come inside any of our buildings. Whilst you are at the farm, there may be other volunteers or groups of children. Please take responsibility for maintaining proper social distancing.
Times: Booking slots are available daily 11am to 3pm. Visits are restricted to 45 minutes so we have time to clean our facilities for the next visitors.
Rides: There are currently no weekend pony or donkey rides due to Covid-19 safety measures. Please check in with us in the New Year for an update.
Booking: please use the form on the Bookings page. Entrance is free.
Change of plans? If you need to cancel or change a booking, please email firstname.lastname@example.org which is monitored weekdays 9am – 6pm.
About the farm
Kentish Town City Farm is a charity that provides opportunities to help people connect with animals, nature and the environment. We are an educational resource for school children to learn about animal physiology, where food comes from and the natural world. We also provide therapeutic riding to people with special needs and farm related activities to local children and families.
Members of the public are welcome to visit to see the animals and enjoy a quiet rural space. Children aged under 8 years old must be accompanied by an adult at all times while at the farm.
The farm covers a 4.5 acre area alongside two railways lines with flourishing community gardens, a riding arena and a wildlife pond. We have goats, sheep, chickens and geese, plus 3 horses, 2 donkeys, 2 pigs and a cow. You might find the animals in their barns or pastures, depending on the time of day, season and weather. On your visit you are welcome to ask staff or volunteers questions about the farm and animals.
Visitor donations are also very welcome. Entrance is free but we rely on visitor donations to support our work. You can drop a donation directly into our red post box on the farmyard or make an online donation with your debit or credit card.
KTCF is wheelchair accessible and seating areas offer visitors a chance to rest and enjoy the views. Accessible toilet facilities are available.
Booking is necessary for all visits. We are open seven days a week and entrance is free. Book here
