Spitalfields City Farm is one of my favourite London places to visit at the weekend. Just a few yards from the crowds and chaos of Brick Lane you’ll find this lovely urban farm, with a whole host of animals to visit from donkeys to pigs to hens.
Being a proper country girl, I can’t think of anything nicer than to pretend I’m escaping the city and enjoy some farmyard activities: befriending goats, stroking a very new lamb and enjoying the lovely spring flowers. This being East London, it also comes complete with a weekend market featuring vintage things to rummage through, fresh produce and impromptu music.
Here’s a few pictures from our cycle ride there last weekend (including one of me with my beloved bicycle Rosie!)
