Tucked off Gorgie Road just south west of the city centre is Gorgie City Farm. We recently visited for the first time and I have been kicking myself for not going sooner. The farm, itself, is small enough to keep young children entertained for an hour or so. There are chickens, goats, cows,pigs and sheep as well as guinea pigs, rats, bunnies and lizards. In addition to the animals there is a small play park (with the tallest slide Lyra has ever seen) and a lovely cafe.
Entry is FREE and donations are happily accepted.
