Overview

For a fun day in the great outdoors, you can't beat a visit to Lower Drayton Farm. Take a stroll through the woodland walk, explore our new nature trail, hop onto the farm trailer ride for a fun & educational tour of the farm, and meet our friendly animals before letting the kids let off steam on the adventure play ground with its swings and zip wire 'death slide'. Younger children will enjoy the ride-on tractors and special toddlers' play area with sand pit, while our indoor play room provides somewhere for babies to play and often has arts & craft activities for youngsters to enjoy. Pony rides and other special activities may also be available, depending on the weather. Open weekends April - Oct and every day during school half terms & holidays.

Sorry to hear you felt misled by the lambing live title Julie - unfortunately it's very difficult to tell exactly when our sheep are going to give birth, and some tend to do it at night, but there's always a chance that you'll be lucky...More
