After you’ve seen the animals, head to the Forge for a metal-making party! Each child gets a 10 mins’ hands-on experience: create insects, animals, flowers or letters in metal. Party room hire and party food available or bring your own. Ages 8+ for participation but kids any age can watch a demonstration. Two/three- hour slot costs £300. Why not catch a Thames Clipper cruise thamesclippers.com to the farm.
