The Pokfulam Farm recently reopened to the public after being closed for renovations, and currently accepts bookings for free guided tours. The farm, which is a Grade 1 historic building, had a soft launch last year and accepted only limited bookings for paid tours on a trial basis.

The free tours give visitors an overview of the history of the farm, its architectural style, and what goes into its conservation. Each tour is half an hour long, and is conducted from Friday-Sunday, and on public holidays. The current tours will be from June 2-4 and June 9-11 at 12-12.30 pm (English) and 4-4.30pm (Cantonese).

Visitors who want to get a free tour should register for one. The farm releases its tour schedules every two weeks, so check its social media pages for updates.

The Pokfulam Farm also has 2.5-hour-long paid tours during which participants will also get an in-depth introduction to Pokfulam Village, the relics of the old cattle sheds, and the University Hall of HKU. The paid tour in June, which costs HK$280 per person, is only in Cantonese and is scheduled for June 4, 17 and 25, from 10am-12.30pm.

Formerly the Old Dairy Farm Senior Staff Quarters known as Braemar, the farm was closed as part of the Revitalising Historic Buildings Through Partnership Scheme. The initiative aimed to preserve the venue’s architectural features, such as the original circular ventilation windows and the fireplace, and comply with modern Fire Safety Ordinance and barrier-free access requirements.
