Booking a visit
We are nearly fully booked for the summer term 2019. Please call the office on 020 7790 8204 to discuss availability.
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 on Wednesday and Thursday and ask to speak to Siobhan. Alternatively, take a look at our information pack, complete a booking form and email it to email@example.com.
Our tours and workshops for Reception are more informal than our KS1 workshops and involve more exploratory/multisensory learning.
