Almond Valley

It's a wonderful day of adventure and play

The fields, woods and green spaces of the Almond Valley site extend either side of the river Almond for nearly a mile. At its heart lies the historic buildings of Livingston Mill and the associated Mill Farm. This is home to many friendly farm animals who are always keen to introduce themselves to visitors. Elsewhere on site, there are all manner of unique and imaginative play spaces set among the fields and gardens.

There’s loads to see and do in all weathers. We’re particularly proud of our new Paraffin Works play area set beneath a giant umbrella, and there’s also indoor soft play and other under-cover features, including our museum displays and activity spaces.

It’s a brilliant day out, especially for families. Come along and find out for yourself.


We're open from 10am to 5pm every day of the year except for December the 25th & 26th, and January 1st & 2nd. Our standard admission charges are:

  • Adults ........£9.50
  • Seniors.......£8.50

Help feed the animals

We'll keep you up to date with all the latest adventures on the farm though social media while Almond Valley is closed to visitors.

Your donations towards the care of the farm animals would be very very welcome during these difficult days. Thanks



Sorry - We're Closed

We're very sorry, but as of 23rd March, we're closed in compliance with government guidelines to restrict the spread of Covid-19.

Fascinating things will continue to happen as springtime unfolds on the farm, and we'll do our best to share these with you through social media.

We'll extend the duration of Friends memberships and community passes to make up for the period in which we are closed.

We hope to be back to you as soon as we possibly can; in the meantime be safe, be sensible, and keep healthy.


Stay safe and look after yourselves
