Cannon Hall Farm welcomes over 40,000 school children each year making it one of the region’s top educational attractions.

Our one-hour guided tour offers an illuminating educational experience designed to fulfil many of the requirements of the national curriculum.

Then the children can enjoy our Adventure Playground.

It’s one of the biggest and best in the region with over £400,000 of investment in the spring of 2011.
There are spectacular new pyramid towers and slides, a huge new space net, fantastic new climbing forest for the older children and an innovative new tube maze that will entertain kids of all ages and provide possibly the best game of hide and seek you’ve ever had.

Undercover area for rainy days

For rainy days we have large purpose built undercover picnic areas.

We provide a quality and value for money experience in a package featuring plenty of animal interaction with lots of scope for work back in the classroom.

In 2005 we were awarded the title “Best Farm For Schools” in the UK.

A day at Cannon Hall Farm is full of possibilities for follow on work and a great investment in the future of your children.

Dozens of schools visit each year because they know we offer the best combination for schools, education and entertainment side by side.

We do all we can to make your visit run smoothly and be safe, fun and informative.

Here’s what one of our 2013 visitors had to say:

Tranmere Park Primary School had a fantastic two days at Cannon Hall Farm. The organisation before and during the trip was exemplary and enabled both children and adults to really enjoy the trip.  The guided tours were very informative and helped the children gain an insight in to a working farm and the care given to the animals on a daily basis. The new adventure playgrounds the children thoroughly enjoyed and it was very handy having so many hand washing facilities around the farm. We definitely will be back!

Many Thanks

Sarah

This website, developed by the farming charity LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming), is a fun way to find out about agriculture and the environment, where you can see and hear about how food is grown with care for wildlife.

The Virtual Farm Walk covers crop and livestock farming, you can visit different parts of the farm, meet the animals, look at machinery, and two farmers are on hand to explain what is going on.

There are lots of things to do and activity sheets that can be downloaded.
