overpriced - family of 4 £58 pay on the day more old amusement style than family farm little or no interaction with animals, of which there are very few and the fencing is so heavy duty that smaller kids can barely see into a lot of it immediately next to the M25 so extremely noisy the larger animals we did...

got pretty bored quite quickly, is enough for a few hours but we expected a few more things to do to fill anywhere near a day out.

Old McDonald's Farm has a great deal to do, & is lots of fun for children. The weather was drizzly, but that didn't matter, as there are places under cover until it stops. We took our 2 year old Grandson, & he loved feeding the animals, & especially the green tractor! Well worth going with children. :-)

Good afternoon out for out 9 ye old he is in a wheelchair but plenty for him to see and along with feeding the various animals it was a joy to watch him getting involved there are a few rides for able bodied kids so something for all however it's a bit pricey

Firstly it is over priced. Secondly it is for children up to 4 years old. The description of activities is misleading. You cannot feed the animals as such. The food is put into a kind of shoot. There is no physical contact with the animals. You cannot pet the animals either. The ponies and train ride are merry go rounds.... More
