Gorse Hill City Farm


Gorse Hill City Farm

Open since 1985, Gorse Hill City Farm is a registered charity and community project dedicated to providing an educational and recreational experience for visitors.

Situated conveniently just outside of Leicester City Centre,
Gorse Hill City Farm features a large variety of animals, with a focus on conservation of rare farm animal breeds and animal welfare. It is also a relaxing green space, featuring a calming garden area and many wild birds in the dense trees surrounding and across the site.

Visitors may purchase animal feed at the entrance, getting the opportunity to interact with the animals right up close, hand feeding and petting them.

It also features The Farmer’s Hut, an on-site café right at the entrance that offers a variety of quality food and drinks.
