Where is Mudchute?
Mudchute Park and Farm is located in the middle of the Isle of Dogs. We are easily accessible by road from the A13 following the signs for the Isle of Dogs and then take the A1206 towards Island Gardens. Look out for the Pier Tavern on the right (the second Pier Street).
Alternatively take the environmentally friendly route on the Docklands Light Railway, alighting at Mudchute station and following the long path from the Park entrance to our horse-riding arena.
The main courtyard containing the Mudchute Kitchen and the Farm entrance is next to the arena.
What it's about
Care for the environment is at the heart of all we do at Mudchute. We have a wonderful 32 acre site which is open to the public and has fantastic views across London.
In partnership with the London Borough of Tower Hamlets we preserve the open space and make it available for events, community groups or just your simple family picnic. And where else do you get to share your lunch with friendly fur and feathered creatures.
Our Farm is one of the largest inner City Farms anywhere in Europe. We pride ourselves on our wonderful collection of British rare breeds and currently have over 200 animals and fowl on our farm! That's one pretty big family to look after...
Throughout Mudchute Farm's landscape and buildings you will be able to view our British rare breed animals, horses and ponies everywhere. The larger animals graze in the outer enclosures and fields, while the smaller and perhaps more cuddly, are kept just next to the main courtyard in 'Pets Corner'. Please note that most of the animals go to bed at around 16:00hrs.
If you want to learn more about the Farm and the animals, please enquire about booking a Farm Tour. A member of the Farm Staff will take you around the Farm and explain more about our livestock and landscape. You will learn more about how the Farm works, get closer to some of the animals, and maybe even help feed some of them. Tours last about an hour. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org ahead of your visit to find out about availability and prices.
Animal encounter sessions can also be booked, in advance, as part of an event or party at Mudchute. Some of our friendliest small animals will be brought to your venue by Farm staff, who can explain more about them, while guests can get up close and stroke their fur or feathers. These sessions are very popular at children's parties.
