Surrey Docks Farm is a working city farm and charity that enables the whole community to learn about farming, food production and the natural environment. We run a range of educational projects targeted to engage those who would benefit most and are supported by hundreds of dedicated volunteers who attend on a weekly basis.
We are open and free to visit from 10am-4pm every day of the week, including bank holidays! Please note all organised groups (schools, nurseries, holiday clubs, community groups etc) must book in advance via our schools page here.
We rely on donations to keep running. Please help us by giving what you can to our donation campaign here.
We’ll be delivering our annual Christmas Fair on Saturday 2nd December, entry remains free but we’ll have a range of festive fundraising activities on offer from 11am-4pm. See you there!
Visit the Farm
The main Farm site is open to visit for free every day from 10am-4pm. The Thames path is opened every day from 9am-5pm, giving access to the takeaway cafe and providing views over our goat yard.
We hire out our classroom space on weekends, providing a fantastic venue for children and family birthday parties.
Family Piglets Club
This Club welcomes pre-school children and a parent/guardian to a monthly group to get up close to the animals and take part in seasonal crafts or storytelling activities. Spaces must be booked in advance!
Meet the Small Animals
We offer drop-in small animal experiences with the rabbits, guinea pigs and chickens every* Saturday for £2 per child (*may be cancelled due to weather or volunteer numbers!)
We rely on a dedicated team of volunteers who assist with animal care and support our community projects every day of the week. We’ve now paused recruitment and aren’t able to take on new volunteers at present.
Our farm shop is open every day from 10am-1pm and 2pm-4pm. Run by dedicated volunteers, we sell animal feed bags for the goats and sheep as well as a range of gift ideas and farm produce.
Surrey Docks Farm is a charity that relies on donations to enable us to remain free to visit and to deliver our educational community projects all year round.
