For those who enjoy taking a nap or sitting outdoors, there is a straw bale seat under the shadow of a wooden boat's end that smells gorgeous.

Goats, sheep, chickens, a donkey, and some small animals such as rabbits and guinea pigs can be spotted at London’s Hackney City Farm. The farm is based at a site were many businesses used to run, ranging from an old local brewery to furniture makers and even a button manufacturer. Nowadays, the farm is well equipped with a pottery studio, the Bike Yard East repair shop, a hub for the organization Magnificent Revolution, meeting and training rooms, offices for an independent production company called Kindle, and an award-winning café called Frizzante that serving the farm’s produce and is decorated with found vintage furniture.
