Ages: 4-12

Venue type: Indoor and Outdoor

Lee Valley Park Farms is home to all those classic family favourites, with fantastic beasts, Alpine adventures and a few prehistoric discoveries thrown in for good measure.

Visit three creature zones, like the land of exotic animals where bearded dragons roam. Then take part in a hawk walk or trek down to The Farmyard where little animal lovers can feed pigs, goats or try and lure a tortoise with a tasty leaf. Cute creatures and kids? Just think of the pictures! 

Kick things up a gear in the adventure play zones where you can swing, slide and swoop your way through the Bundle Barn, or fly down the hillside on a toboggan built for two. A ride on Tex the Tractor might just then be the perfect way to cool off while making your way over to the Dino Dig & Splash: an adventurers’ essential.

We all had a great time here. The kids enjoyed looking around the animals and it was a nice place to spend a few hours.

Fun day out

Like most kids ours love animals, so this was a great day out for all. The indoor play is handy if the weather is a bit mixed, which it was when we visited. Classic, good value day out!

Not What I thought

This was a waste of money! The kids were bored as there is hardly anything to look at. The staff were not particularly friendly (I heard them all talking about someone from head office coming down - they were panicking), the animals were not particularly fun to view either. The tractor ride was broken, so we couldn't even do that. We walked around the "farm" in 20 minutes. It's not particularly pram friendly either, like it suggests online. I can safely say, we will not be back.
