There's a world of enjoyment at Battersea Park Children's Zoo. From feeding the farm animals, spying on the meerkats in the secret lookout, children will have hours of fun. With monkeys, snakes, pigs, donkeys, ring tailed lemurs, parrots, rabbits, emu, chipmunks, coati, wallabies and chickens, plus a fun-packed adventure playground with a real tractor and fire engine, it's a great family day out.

Small but very cute little zoo. The prices are very affordable and after the visit there's the Battersea Park itself. The park is huge and beautifully maintained. Great place for a family day out. Car parking (that's about 100 metres away from the zoo entrance) is £5.40 for over 3 hours on a Saturday.

Battersea Park is, as a whole, a fantastic facility bordered on one side by the River Thames. About half way along the river border side of the park is the children's zoo. Conveniently, close by, is a tricycle rental centre and café facilities. Within the zoo there is a good selection of small animals a number of which can be... More

Having loved Battersea Park for years we've now discovered (as new grandparents!) its brilliantly revamped zoo. An excellent collection of animals including a Scottish Wild Cat no less, plus superb play areas for children. Thanks and congrats to all concerned !

Warm, welcoming staff and the best Father Christmas ever. Everyone had a great time. Great facilities and the strength of the zoo is the lovely staff in the café, shop, feeding the animals and the wonderful 'elves' with Santa showing us the guinea pigs. Will definitely return.

It's compact and good for young children. Apart from looking at the animals, my kid had a great time at the sandpit too! Food at cafe was reasonable priced. And we love the slushie! What striked us was that the zoo is REALLY CLEAN! And well-maintained! All in all, well worth the entrance fee!

We went here today with 2 children aged 10 and 7. The entry fee was ok but probably not value for money after seeing the limited amount of animals. It's a place you can spend an hour but not much more. £29 for a family ticket is OK but rather expensive for 1 hour's entertainment. Quite a few animals either... More

Went there with the kids, there were a number of empty cages with no animals, and the cost for this was far too expensive. The entrance is also the exit so people with push chairs have trouble getting in and out. There seemed to be morte staff sitting having a break then there were animals, I would have liked to...
