Today I spent most of the day at Hackney City Farm with little A and M. Last time I went was during the summer which is probably the best time of the year to go, but a relatively warm November day isn't too bad either. The place isn't crowded and it is only a few stops on the DLR from Canary Wharf. Last time I went we explored the area a bit more, but it was a bit too muddy today to do that. We brought packed lunch this time but the cafe there has really nice food so next time we might have lunch there instead. Little A enjoyed feeding carrots to the goats and also seemed to enjoy the idea that she had a lot of new space to explore. I can really feel that we live too central when I go to places like that, even though parks are great it is not always the same.
We didn't spend more than one or two hours there as that is enough at this time of the year. But the fact that it is much less crowded and that it is free makes it a better option than going to a city zoo. It also feels quite unusual to watch farm animals with a city view in the background. I'm sure this won't be the last time we go there and next time we will also have to go and see Broadway Market, which apparently should be really good and much more quiet than Portobello Road on a Saturday.
I'm wearing jacket and trousers Zara, bag Primark (£3!) and shoes Moss Copenhagen.
Little A is wearing jacket Mini a Ture, trousers H&M All for children and New Balance sneakers.
