Clothing and footwear

Please remember we are a working farm and our pathways are grass not concrete, so bring footwear suitable for the weather. Wellies are always welcome and on sunny days don’t forget to bring a ready stock of sun cream and a sun hat. We also suggest packing a warmer layer or lightweight waterproofs in the car whatever the weather – you’ll be spending most of your time outdoors, and it’s always worth planning for every eventuality with the great British weather.


Toilets and baby nappy changing facilities are available on site.


We welcome visitors in wheelchairs and with pushchairs to Lower Drayton Farm, but please note that the attraction is on grass and some paths on the nature trail may be unsuitable for wheelchair access. Disabled parking is situated close to reception.

No dogs

Sorry, as Lower Drayton Farm is a working farm we can’t allow visitors to bring their dogs on site.
We understand that dogs are part of the family and don’t want to spoil your fun – however, dogs can spread neosporosis contamination; a parasitic infection that can lead to abortion and stillbirth in cattle. We therefore urge visitors to please leave their dogs at home as it’s dangerous to leave them in cars for even a few minutes in warm weather. Thanks for your understanding.

Special events

Special events take place at the farm regularly throughout the year, from Country Fairs through to music festivals, Spooktacular Fireworks displays and our ‘Winter Wonderfarm’ experience. Additional charge applies for entry to these events over and above the entry fee for the fun farm attraction.

Throughout the year, the fun farm itself also hosts special themed days – additional attractions like animal experiences (meet the meerkats / falconry) and seasonal activities like Easter Egg Hunts, Pond dipping, nature trails and special crafts all of which may be subject to additional charge.
