Good morning to all our international students and volunteers! Here is the forth tip on how to make the most of your time in London. Whether you are going to come over to London to attend our Learn English through Drama summer course in July and August or to do a volunteer work experience in London, I would like to dedicate this post to the wild side of London: the city farms.
This is the forth one of a series of posts about how to make the most of your stay in London after the English speaking course for learning English through drama or after volunteering in charity shops.
As a Londoner, sometimes I miss the nature, the open spaces of the countryside and yes… the rural life! I love pets and animals and when I need to relax and do something that has nothing to do with the urban environment, I always go for a visit to one of the city farms in London.
City farms are proper farms located in the heart of the cities. Usually the city farms are places ran by charities that take care of pets and animals thanks to the work of the volunteers involved.
There are at least 10 city farms in London. The most popular ones are in Hackney (postcode E2 8QA) and Vauxhall (postcode SE11 5HS), but you can find the complete list of city farms in London here.
If you fancy an alternative walk among sheep, goats, donkeys and other lovely animals, don’t miss out the chance to visit the closest city farm to your place. You can even have breakfast or lunch in these places – some of them are very popular for their exquisite organic menus!
So, yes: this is a very cool thing to do in London… even if you come from the countryside! 🙂
Here’s a list of city farms you can visit in London.
