About Surrey Docks Farm

Surrey Docks Farm is a working city farm in the heart of London. It occupies a beautiful 2.2 acre site on the south bank of the river Thames in Rotherhithe.

The farm is an ideal setting and environment for environmental activities throughout the calendar year. There is always something interesting to see at the farm, no matter what the season or weather.

The farm works with local communities and the people of Southwark to provide many unique opportunities for people to learn about farming, food production, and be actively involved in the ongoing working life of the farm.

Animals reared on the farm include a herd of goats, sheep, cattle, pigs, ducks, geese, chickens, turkeys, bees and donkeys. The herds, flocks and swarms are farmed with specific attention to animal welfare at all times.

There are a variety of green and horticultural attractions at Surrey Docks Farm. We have an orchard, herb garden, dye garden, vegetable plots, and the wildlife area. All horticulture areas of the farm double as educational space.

The farm prides itself on having an open animal yard where members of the public can interact with our goats, sheep and chickens. The open yard was upgraded in 2014 to facilitate a safe and clean environment for both our visitors and animals.

Surrey Docks Farms is open 7 days a week, 10am – 5pm (summer time) and 10am – 4pm (winter).

Entry to the public is FREE, although a £3 per person donation is suggested

If you are intending to visit us in a group please take a look at our Group Visits page.

Please note the Piccalilli Caff’ in the farm is closed on Mondays.

The award winning Piccalilli Caff is our onsite resident caff. We operate a beekeeping workshop in the summer months, “Piccalilli Caff”, working blacksmith’s forge and adult education rooms. We have a fully equipped classroom used by schools from across London.

The farm is managed by the Surrey Docks Farm Provident Society Ltd, a tax exempt charitable organisation registered with the Financial Services Authority, and recognised as charatable by HM Revenue & Customs (registration number 22829R).

Current patrons of the Society include the Bishop of Southwark and Sir Simon Hughes. The Society particularly encourages membership applications from local people to ensure they are at the forefront of what is essentially a local community project. Committee members of the Provident Society are elected at the Annual General Meeting.
