Farm Animal Experience

Looking for a unique Christmas present for and animal lover in central London? Look no further!

We offer three different animal experience sessions that give you the chance to get up close and meet our goat herd, flock of sheep, or our cheeky pony. Our experienced Livestock staff will show you into the animal enclosures and let you interact with our friendly animals during your chosen session. This makes the perfect activity for an unusual date or a special treat for an animal lover!

These sessions are aimed at adults, each booking enables a maximum of 4 people to visit their chosen animals. You won’t be sharing the pen with other guests, just your own party. The goat and sheep sessions include 40 minutes in the pens, while the pony session lasts for an hour and include taking the pony out for a walk or in the yard to lead her over an agility course.

The sessions can be tailored for children, but we strongly recommend this activity for those aged 8 plus to get the most out of the sessions. Please note children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian at all times.

By purchasing one of our animal experience sessions, you’ll get to groom a goat or lead a pony here in London whilst also supporting the running of our charity Farm and ensuring others in the community can continue to benefit from our projects.

 

Meet the Herd

We offer a ‘Meet the Herd’ goat experience! Your party of up to four people will be welcomed to the Farm and given 40 minutes up close with Surrey Docks Farm’s friendly nanny goats. You can groom them and take the younger goats for a walk around the Farm. We have two different goat breeds, Anglo Nubian and Toggenburg here, plus if you visit late Spring or in the Summer you’ll get to meet our playful goat kids as well!

Meet the Pony

Our ‘Meet the Pony’ experience gives your party of up to four people the chance to get up close to Surrey Docks Farm’s Miniature Shetland Pony, Kiera. Led by one of our experienced Livestock staff you will spend an hour with Kiera, giving her a good groom, learning all about her and then taking her out for a walk around the neighbouring area or setting up an agility course for her and leading her around!

Meet the Flock

Our ‘Meet the flock’ sheep experience gives your party of up to four people the chance to go inside the sheep pen and get up close to Surrey Docks Farm’s friendly ewes. We have two different sheep breeds, Oxford Downs and a White-faced Woodland sheep. If you visit late Spring or in the Summer you’ll get to meet our playful lambs as well!
