  • Moderately sized but excellent for small children upto around 10yrs. Lots of goats & sheep which you can purchase food for and they will eat it off your hand which kids loved. Nice walk through woods. Cafe there but didn't use as took food , lots of picnic benches. Friendly staff who will have a chat, appear to be lots of volunteers about. £2.00 adults kids £1. Could spend 2 hours here.
  • Run by volunteers and only a suggested donation of £2 for adults (think only £1 for kids) with the many various farmyard animals you'd expect. There's also a great cafe which you can go to without going inside but can still see some of the creatures. Like to visit here with my friends. Highly recommended
  • Great little city farm to go to with kids. Nice audio guides for the older kids/adults, food for the animals available (50p) which the sheep go crazy for, and sometimes birds of prey. The cafe is ok, slow and a little overpriced, but food is kid friendly and nice for a tea and cake after walking around the farm.
  • Nice little place but not a lot of variety (goats, goats, goats, sheep, cows, ponies horse, goats, donkeys, crocodile (joking!) And some small animals like bunnies etc). Nice place to let kids see the animals though.
  • Good place for young children to come and interact with farm animals. Very inexpensive and not too big to walk around. Of course I'd come here again. 😀

Where to stay in Leicester

A B&B near Leicester Clock Tower is within walking distance of the main attractions. Charming architecture surrounds the clock tower square and makes a lovely backdrop to walking tours of the city. For a luxury hotel, consider staying in a renovated Victorian building on the outskirts of the city center.
