The Salvation Army’s Hadleigh Farm has evolved over the last 120 years. Today they are a commercial farm, a place of natural beauty, committed to environmental and social progress, and home to an English Heritage site.
As well as being the host venue for the London 2012 Mountain Bike course, Hadleigh Farm offers a number of attractions for the whole family. Their guided walks offer a fascinating insight into the Hadleigh Farm area, including the historic 14th century Hadleigh Castle and their commercial farm.
Their tea rooms are renowned throughout the local community and beyond for the quality of food and the atmosphere.
