A perfectly nice place, great for kids and pricing isn't too bad! The selection of animals is pretty good and it's a generally nice place to visit

We visited with two young boys and overall thought it made a nice morning out but for us there wasn't enough to do to make it worth the admission fee. The play structures are good and varied and fairground rides are great however as a farm I feel it could have more animals or perhaps some sessions with farmers, maybe... More

I last went to the farm 5 years ago, it seemed busy customer wise, but i was disappointed with lack of staff and staff enthusiasm. I went again last month and have to say the site has improved ten fold, all areas were open, all animals looked well. Staff look tired and don't interact with children and get involved, it... More

I took my two children there with pretty low expectations because the online pictures didn't really show much. A part of me was nervous that I'd be one of few people visiting. However the location was extremely convenient for an East Londoner. On arriving, however, I was pleasantly surprised at its popularity. The car park was busy but not too... More

this was our first visit in 4 years and I think there are less animals now than there was 4 years ago. emphasis seems to be on the amusements and rides rather than the animals as it should be. Im not sure it knows it it wants to be a theme park or a farm. at the moment its jack... More

I went with the family including 6 grandchildren, After visiting the animals we had our picnic lunch. Plenty of tables and seats to choose from And the car park is near so not a long walk you can leave your... More

Was a lovely day out with all the children until lunch time... We went to the cafe. Slow service, cold food and the children had undercooked sausages!!! When I took the food back there was no apology!

I had a lovely day at old McDonald's farm the other day I went with a friend and her 2 year old boy and he really loved all the play equipment they have there. Bit of a line for food and things but was a lovely day overall and nice to see so many other families enjoying them selves.

Today I have been on a trip from school. These children all have special needs. I would like to say how wheelchair accessible this farm is. The pathways are good and clean. Children are able to get right up to the farm animals. There is a good variety of farm animals and of course plenty of Old MacDonald music keeping... More

Myself, my friend, and our 2 year old children took a trip to Old MacDonald's Farm in October 2014 and had a great experience. There were a lot of workers taking care of the farm, its surroundings and their animals which was nice to see. We definitely went round the farm in the correct way to maximise satisfaction and the...
