The farm is huge if you compare it to the "City farm" in Hackney, they only have one coop and you can't touch any of the animals.

10 reviews of Mudchute City Farm in English
Great farm, lots of animals, lots of space, great for kids. You can easily spend 1-1,5 hour here just looking at animals, feeding them and walking. London feels miles away when walking around here patting llamas and sheep.
The only disappointing thing about Mudchute City Farm is the cafe, the drinks and cakes are ok, but the hot dishes are overpriced and overhyped.
At £8 for an English breakfast it's a rip-off to only get ONE rasher of bacon and ONE piece of bread. If you're an urban hipster who is more interested in food than animals, then you should go to Hackney City Farm instead.
To sum it up, you're better off eating somewhere else before/after you visit, or bring your own packed lunch and order some drinks there.
If you do bring your own feed for the animals make sure to bring apples or carrots, absolutely no bread is allowed.
I went to visit Mudchute farms kitchen for some afternoon tea and cakes.
Although there wasn't much of a selection the flapjack and brownie looked off putting I chose the raspberry jam sponge, it was delicious!
Will go back to try the mains!

I have taken the kids to Mudchute twice over the school holidays and they still want to go again an infact so do i!
Itis easy to get to even from out of the area only being a short walk from Crossharbour station thorugh Asda's carpark.
Covering 32 acres of land Mudchute really does have something for everyone!
The llamas are my particular favourite! However I am still yet to see the rabbits etc (the first time i didn't realise they were there and on the 2nd visit we were too late and they had gone to bed for the evening!).
I would definatly go back for another visit! The area itself are clean and the staff are friendly.
However the cow does seemed to be renowned for headbutting from reading another posters review and i actually have a video of the cow attempting to headbut my friend however it was her own fault!
All in all its a fab day out and my kids love it and we will be back for another visit very soon!
I thought I'd reviewed Mudchute already. How remiss of me. Especially since I've been plotting to steal the llamas ever since. (Or llama glama if you want to use their Latin name, and I do.)
Let's face it, this farm is mostly about the llama glamas. We've seen pigs before. We know what they look like! (Although they're funny here - their ears flop over their eyes as they walk and tey can't see properly, hehehe.) But llama glamas are awesome. So were the cute happy sheep who wanted to be our friends. I think the animals have got very used to being fed, but it makes them all the cuter. You can buy feed from the little shop. We didn't. We're meanies.
The rest of the farm is tiny. Dizzy the Donkey is pretty awesome though. And the turkey that tried to attack me through a cage was pretty cool. I've plotted to steal him too. For my dinner. Birds always attack me and I don't like it.
The horses are friendly, and the nice staff will let you play with them if you accidentally walk into the wrong bit. Really really happy horses, yay.
The only thing I didn't like? The staff sitting about smoking right by the pens and the kids. Move behind a pig sty at least. Jeez. I'm a smoker, but I'd never smoke in a city farm, I'd expect more from the people who work here.
If it wasn't for the llama glamas, they would have got less stars, but llamas and their camp eyelashes and prancing will always win me over.
Went today and loved it! great way to spend the day. the park and farm isnt big so dont expect to spend the whole day here. You can see birds, pigs, sheep, cows, donkeys, horses, llamas, and goats!
It was great being close to the animals, stroking them, and feeding them too! You can buy bags of food from the farm shop opposite the mudchute kitchen cafe for a very reasonable 50p. I really recommend feeding the animals - lots of fun!!! While at the farm shop you can buy fresh laid eggs, but they go early.
The mudchute kitchen cafe is very nice too for stopping to have lunch or tea ( or coffee ) and cakes. The bread and cakes all hand made.
The farm and grounds are free. Kids will love it, and you will too!

A lovely inner city farm that is unspoiled by the development of Canary Wharf and the Isle of Dogs in general.
It’s a great cut through to get from ASDA to the other side of the Island, you’ll be sure to spot a lot of wildlife alongside the animals of the farm. Squirrels and Rats are the most popular animal you’ll find.
If you love wildlife or simply want to get away from it all, it’s worth a visit. You won’t even know you’re in London! And if you’re into horse riding you could book a lesson or just go and have a cup of tea in the café.
I am so so lucky to live across the road from this amazing city farm! they have everything from llamas to donkeys cows sheep even pigs!
the best bit is i always walk through on the way to asda and you have to walk through a feild of animals!
i mean like sheep running towards you!
i friend of mine got headbutted by a cow last week!
i blame them! they wanted to stroke it!
5 stars all the way
you wont believe what your seeing with sheep grazing and canary wharf in the background!
We heard about Mudchute's great cream teas and headed there one Sunday. The farm is small and unfortunately lots of the animals were out of view on the day we visited but we got to see the giant bunny and lots of horses as well as enjoying a hearty brunch. As usual my review will revert back to food but I could not fail to mention the amazing mushrooms on toast they serve up here. Lovely toasted crusty bread and garlicy mushrooms. The farm has a riding school and is located in a little oasis of calm on the Isle of Dogs- you feel like you could be out in the Countryside somewhere miles from London. A perfect little escape from City life and it's free to get in too.
