Farm Animal Experience
Looking for a unique Christmas present for an 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, friendly donkeys, or our cheeky pony. Our experienced Livestock staff will show you into the animal enclosures and let you interact with our animals during your chosen session. This makes the perfect activity for an unusual date or a special treat for an animal lover!
Each booking enables a maximum of 2 people to visit their chosen animals. You won’t be sharing the pen with other guests, just your own party. All sessions include 30 minutes.
The sessions are aimed at adults over 18 years old. We can tailor the sessions for older children, but only for those aged 8 plus. This is so we can safely run the sessions and children can get the most out of it. Please note children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian at all times.
By purchasing one of our animal experience sessions, you’ll get a hands on farm experience 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 Pony
Our ‘Meet the Pony’ experience gives your party of up to two adults 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 half an hour with Kiera, giving her a good groom and learning all about her.
Meet the Goats
We offer a ‘Meet the Goats’ experience! Your party of up to two adults will be welcomed to the Farm and given 30 minutes up close with Surrey Docks Farm’s friendly nanny goats. We have two different goat breeds, Anglo Nubian and Toggenburg here, plus this summer you’ll get the chance to walk a couple of our goats around the Farm!
Meet the Donkeys
Our ‘Meet the Donkey’ experience gives your party of up to two adults the chance to get up close to Surrey Docks Farm’s donkeys, Snowy and Fidget. Led by one of our experienced Livestock staff you will spend half an hour with the donkeys, giving them a good groom and learning all about them.
