South East England has petting zoos and animal farms across the area packed with things to do for all the family.

Farms Parks in the UK are increasing in popularity and it is no wonder so many are turning to agritourism for family days out with activities being offered from feeding the animals to riding a pony. Many of the farmhouses in the South East provide new experiences and different types of farming for people of all ages.

Children's farms give kids the chance to get close to animals such as pigs or have a softer experience with rabbits. There is a lot of history and heritage when it comes to farming therefore most attractions will have a museum to give visitors an insight into farming history and working practices.

Most of the farms will have a cafe where after long day you can just relax and sample of some of the organic food and drink that is on offer.
