Fantastic school trips

With extensive experience, Godstone Farm opened its doors as an educational farm for school visits over 40 years ago. Over the years, it has developed into the farm you see today.

 

With all this experience, we guarantee to deliver fantastic learning experiences for your school trips. We aim to ensure everyone, including children, teachers and helpers, will thoroughly enjoy their school visit, whether you live in Surrey, Sussex, Kent or beyond.
