Newham City Farm & Visitor Centre

Stansfield Road
Greater London

Newham City Farm was established in 1977 offering educational and leisure activities for the community. A wide collection of farm animals has been built up over the years including a number of rare breeds. The farm recently expanded, developing an existing park building into a Visitors Centre, which provides classroom facilities and display room. The farm also gained more grazing paddocks, this allows us to put more animals outside, providing everyone with more to look at.

The Visitor Centre is now open more regularly at weekends for casual visitors, who are welcome to look at the displays, talk to staff about aspects of the farm's work and participate in any activities which are taking place. Come and see our family of Berkshire pigs, the Red Poll cow, our rare Golden Guernsey goats, new born animals in the Spring and Blaze the working Shire Horse.

  • General tour of the farm with information on breeds and ages of animals. A chance to hold and touch some of the animals.
