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.

Baring in mind this is a small farm, they should have lots of fun activities to attend throughout the day especially in the winter months. The tractor ride started at 1:45, which was appalling as there is not much there to do so it should be on once an hour at least from midday. The birthday parties could have the... 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
