Educational & Group Visits

Important Information

Following the latest government guidance, we can not encourage or allow social gatherings of more than 6 people in one group. We are still open and can welcome as many people on site as we can safely provide a fun day out for. We allow bookings for up to 6. We appreciate families can come in varying sizes so if your household bubble is more than 6 please contact us.

Group Visits

We hope you will consider Finkley Down Farm for your visit.
Many nurseries, pre-schools, primary and junior schools come back year after year, as there is plenty to see and do whatever your chosen topic, and makes a great end of term reward.

There are lots of hands-on learning with children able to touch and feed the animals. Check out our Daily Activities timetable which the children can join in on the visit. Finkley Down Farm offers a choice of activities for Pre-School and Key Stage 1 pupils.
