It’s all about the animals at the Rare Breeds Centre, where you get the chance to meet creepy crawlies, birds of prey and much, much more!

Set in 100 acres of stunning grounds there’s a lot to see and do on this farm. Start at the pig racing, not forgetting to pick your favourite before they set off before learning how to plant and produce your own food in the life garden. Past swings, hill forts and an aerial runway you’ll find sheep and squirrels and a beautiful woodland spot, ideal for a picnic!

Inside there’s a fantastic play barn and the children’s barn where you’ll meet goats, rabbits, ducks, cows and hens. There’s also the amazing birds of prey, which you can experience handling and flying for an additional cost!

More than a day’s worth of fun and activity!

Great place to visit

5 star Rating 5 / 5

Our whole family enjoyed visiting the farm. Unfortunately we arrived late so didn't get to enjoy all that they had to offer. Lots of animals to see and we loved the mini parks they have as well as it is hard to find a decent play area in my area Folkestone. Was defiantly worth the visit and shall be back again soon in the summer to enjoy a picnic there. We shall bringing with us either more family or friends to enjoy the day out.

Best day out for the young family
