These are the perfect sweet treat after a Haggerston dinner.
A day at Cocklawburn Beach
Fancy a day out at the seaside? Pick up a bag of our renowned Haggerston fish and chips and make the short journey to the picturesque Cocklawburn Beach. Paddle in and out of the cooling seawater or set up a small picnic area on the sand, and watch the rocking waves and passing boats as you dig into your food – bliss.
If you and your family love animals, then a visit to Conundrum Farm is a must. You and your kids will get to enjoy a guided tour around the farm, getting to feed and greet the animals, which include lambs, piglets, and goats. There’s even a Fun Barn, an indoor play area that includes pedal tractors, a sand pit and a bouncy castle, as well extremely cute guinea pigs and rabbits.
