Spitalfields City Farm is a city farm in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, a short distance from Brick Lane.
The farm was opened in 1978 on a 1.3-acre (0.53 ha) wasteland site that was a former railway goods depot. Initially an allotment site, it expanded to house animals, and became a charity in 1980.
Since 2008 the farm has held an annual "Oxford vs Cambridge Goat Race", coinciding with and parodying The Boat Race on the River Thames.

  • The donkeys truly are the highlight of this beautiful little city farm. The small food stall has an excellent choice of light snacks and hot and cold beverages. Highly recommend for a family day our or even a date.
  • It is such a cozy place and a great find in the center of the dense city. You can see several farm animals. I liked the design of the childeren’s playgrounds. Also buying seeds from it’s market was so nice.
