Reception

Booking a visit

The farm is often in high demand but we’re a small site and our maximum capacity is 30 children. Please get in touch with our Education Team if you would like to visit with your class for self-guided tours, guided tours or workshops.

To book, call the office on 0207 790 8204 (Tuesday – Friday) and ask to speak to Alex or Hannah. Alternatively, take a look at our information pack, complete a booking form and email it to youth@stepneycityfarm.org.

Our tours and workshops for Reception are more informal than our KS1 workshops and involve more exploratory/multisensory learning.
