Attraction Information

There are so many animals to visit at Lancaster Park and Animal Farm, a family run children’s petting farm in Chadderton, near Oldham.

Animals include sheep, horses, rabbits, chickens, mice and ducks to name a few. Families can meet, touch and feed the animals even the babies as and when they arrive throughout the year!

In the farm grounds you can ride the Caterpillar – a single barrel cart pulled along by a quad bike, have a race on the Rooster Rally - a hale bale lined race-track with battery powered quad karts, or use the mini JCB digger look for buried treasure on Digger Island.

A great value day out for the whole family!

Working farm.. 5 out of 5 stars

Well i would just like to say how amazing this farm is. I have been coming here for a couple of years now with my nephew and we absolutley love it. Weve seen this farm grow and grow and the more they have grown the better it has come. I cant imagine what its going To be like in the next few years to come. They have a different wide range of animals which is nice to see. You can pet all the animals and you can hold some of the smaller animals in the petting barn. They have 2 play areas. Lots of places for you to wash you hands. A nice PIcnic wagon that you can eat your Dinner on at THe top play area aswell as lots of picnic benches around the farm. Around easter TIme you can also go and help THe staff to feed the baby lambs. Which is a really nice experience. All the staff are so welcoming, always have a smile on their faces and are happy to answer any questions you want to ask. I deffinatly recommend going To Lancaster park and animal farm. Guarenteed to have an amazing day out.. not just for children, adults aswell.. get there as soon as. I went the other week and they've told me theyre open on fridays now aswell as saturdays, sundays, bank holidays and school holidays which Is even better! Youll have a good time in winter or SUmmer. We love it :D
