Deen City Farm is a working example of a farm that demonstrates rural and agricultural activities to its surrounding urban community. Located on a 5 acre site within an industrial estate, there are many farm animals to see, such as pigs, goats, sheep, alpacas, cows, turkeys, chickens, geese, ducks, and small pets. There is also an aviary of colourful canaries and finches. Some of the animals can be touched or even feed with food purchased from the farm shop. The associated riding school offers lessons for children (aged 8 or over) and adults at reasonable prices. Pony rides are available for younger children - see Farm's website for details. Entry to the Farm is free, but donations would be very welcome to help keep the Farm going.

How To Get There:

By Car

There is vehicular access to Windsor Avenue from either Liberty Avenue (off the A236) or Jubilee Way (off the A24). We have a visitors' car park at the bottom of the farm gate, which is accessible during opening hours.

From central London:

Follow the A24 south from Clapham out towards Epsom and Leatherhead, to Merton. At the junction with the A236, shortly after passing Collier's Wood Tube station, continue forwards across the cross-roads onto the A236 (the A24 turns right here). Then take the second turning right into Liberty Avenue. Continue along this road and on into Windsor Avenue. The entrance to the driveway to the Farm will then be on your left, just after crossing the river and just before the width restrictions (7ft wide).

From Croydon:

Follow the A236 north-west towards Merton and Wimbledon, along Mitcham Road, and then Croydon Road. Continue on the A236 through Mitcham, along Commonside West and Upper Green (East and West) and onto Western Road. Continue along this road, past the gas works, to where the road turns left then right at cross-roads with Church Road (left), Palestine Grove (straight-on) and Christchurch Road (right). Continue to follow the A236 to turn right into Christchurch Road, then take the next turing left into Liberty Avenue, and continue to the Farm as described above (from central London).

From the M25:

Leave the M25 at junction 8 (Reigate), the follow the A217 north through Kingswood, Banstead and Sutton to Morden. At a large roundabout, take the second exit to follow the main road north towards Merton as it becomes the A297. Follow the A297 to its junction with the A24. Turn right (nearly straight on) at the roundabout onto the A24 towards Merton and central London. Continue past the parkland on your right, across the railway, then take the second turning right, at traffic lights, into Jubilee Way. Continue past all of the DIY stores to where the roads bends sharply to the right, at the junction of Jubilee Way with Windsor Avenue and Deer Park Road. Turn left (almost straight on) into Windsor Avenue. Continue along this road and the entrance to the driveway to the Farm will be on the right, just after the width restriction and just before the road crosses the river.

From Wimbledon:

Follow the A219 south-east (from Wimbledon Station) along The Broadway and follow it right into Merton Road. Continue across the cross-roads with the A238 at South Wimbledon Tube station and onto Morden Road (still the A219). Continue south along Morden Road, where becomes the A24, which merges from the left. Then take the next turning left into Jubilee Way, and continue to the Farm as described above (from the M25).

By Public Transport

By bus:

The 200 Bus runs from Raynes Park via Wimbledon Station (BR), Queens Rd, Haydons Rd, Colliers Wood, and Phipps Bridge, Mitcham. The stop for the Farm is known as Phipp's Bridge, but is situated in Haslemere Avenue. A short walk along Homefield Gardens will bring you to a footbridge (over the River Wandle) in Phipps Bridge Road and you are at the Farm.

The 93 Bus connects Putney & Wimbledon with Morden & Sutton. You should get off at the Princess of Wales pub and head through the industrial estate along Jubilee Way and into Windsor Avenue.  It is about a 15 minute walk.

By Tramlink:

The Tramlink runs from Beckenham Junction or Addington Village to Wimbledon via Croydon. The stops for the Farm are Phipps Bridge (10 minute walk through streets) or Morden Road (10 minutes walk across parkland).

By Tube:

Colliers Wood and South Wimbledon stations on the Northern Line are within walking distance (about 20 minutes from either). The walk from the Savacentre (near Colliers Wood), following the river bank, all the way up to the farm, is pleasant and takes you past Merton Abbey Mills
