Who doesn't love seeing cute new farmyard arrivals in the Spring? There are a few City Farms across London where you'll be sure to spot some lambs and ducklings.

Set beneath the buildings of Canary Wharf, Mudchute City Farm is the largest urban farm in London. They're even hosting an Easter egg hunt this year if animals aren't your thing!

If you haven't visited yet, Vauxhall City Farm has a full host of cute animals, and a lovely cafe to boot!
