Destination Tennis: Spring Farm Alpacas, London

Spring Farm Alpacas

Located about an hour outside London in the countryside county of Sussex, Spring Farm Alpacas is home to dozens of South American alpacas. The farm nurtures and raises these furry friends, and sheers them for their extremely soft fur. Each alpaca is memorable for its own unique name, ranging from Hermione to Picasso. Walks with the alpacas are available every day of the week, but must be prearranged with a minimum of 2 people per booking. Walks last about 45 minutes, and cover about a mile of scenic pasture.

Address: Spring Farm, North Hall Lane, Fletching, East Sussex, TN22 3SA
