Lee Valley Park Farms in Waltham Abbey, Essex are just the best kind of fun...

Lee Valley Park Farms in Waltham Abbey, Essex are just the best kind of fun when it comes to a great value family day out.There are cuddly sheep, giant rabbits, rare breed pigs, long-necked llamas and a loveable meerkat family to meet.You can hit the heights on the giant bouncy pillow, scale the Spider Tower or whizz down the slopes on our fantastic toboggan run. The lttle ones love riding on the combine harvester in Piglet's Paradise.Then take a short trip on a tractor trailer to our working dairy farm, where you'll meet the cows and learn all about life on a real farm.

Have taken our 22month son here a couple of times and he loves it. Plenty to see and do including a small indoor soft play area and a good outdoor playground.

What an excellent place this is. After the appalling treatment we received at Foxholes Farm in Hertford, we decided to come to Lee Valley Park Farms with our 2 dogs. Wow!! The staff here can't do enough to help and are lovely, polite and 110% dog friendly. Very reasonably priced too. Will definitely be going back here on a regular... More

All my children and now my grandchildren love this place, it is only accessible by car, and yes it does look a little run down in places, but the family loves this place. There are lots of places for the children to run around and nearby there are footpaths for the children to let off steam! It is a must-go-to... More

This is a regular day out for myself and my 19 month old. Great value yearly passes but day entry is not over prices either. Great range of animal well kept and clean. There is a large indoor play area so little ones can run off steam as well and a few different outdoor play areas you can spend most... More
