Mudchute Park and City Farm: Lambs, alpacas and… an anti aircraft gun?!
Can you believe how gorgeous the weather has been this weekend!? All week the sun has taunted us through the clouds while the wind and air staunchly refused to believe it was spring. And yet, come the Bank Holiday weekend and all of a sudden it’s practically summer! What a perfect excuse to get out and explore!
So me and the other half couldn’t resist a day out, and we didn’t have to go far… Mudchute Park and Farm is one of the finest city farms in London and sits in the shadows of Canary Wharf. I was amazed to find it’s also completely free to visit.
So off we went to explore 32 acres of countryside, right in the heart of east London. Here’s what we got up to…
We learned the difference between llamas and alpacas. These handsome fellows are alpacas…
We celebrated spring in the best way possible — by spending time with the cutest lamb in the world.
And met the sleepiest pig in east London.
We explored the quiet corners of the park…
And relaxed with some beautiful donkeys.
We got another view of the City of London.
And saw an ack ack gun used at Mudchute in defence of London.
And we bathed in the sun, just like the turkeys and goats…
