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...more

We bribed our kids (7 & 11) with a visit to this zoo in exchange for going to a nearby furniture shop on a Bank Holiday Sunday. It's quite a walk from Clapham Junction station (we came back from Queenstown Road - much closer), but...More

It's a nice small zoo for toddlers. There are not a lot of animals, and you can walk around it in 10 minutes and see them all. Now, with a toddler, you could stretch if over an hour or two, and let them hang around...More

It’d been a couple of years since I was last here and I remember it being such a sweet little zoo. Went today and was so shocked! Has fallen into a terrible state of disrepair. I was overwhelmed by the stench of the fetid swampy...More

The park is amazing - the zoo, not so much. Over 30$ to see what we can see in the backyard or on the way to the zoo: squirrels, Chipmunks, mice, pony’s - kind of crazy they charge so much for a glorified petting zoo....More

On our recent trip to Battersea Park we decide to visit Battersea Zoo. As a name suggest you would expect to find animals which you normally don’t see anywhere else – that is not a case with this place. In a fact half of the...More

Animals seem well taken care of. But for price expect more than rats, rabbits, horses, emus and a few meerkats. Save your money!

I visited the park with friends grandchildren the other day - never seen so many 'sad' looking animals and such a limited range of animals - not sure it would get away with the title of "Zoo' under the trades description act... Most disappointing -...More

Decent size! Just the place you want to be with the kids. In great weather, there's a good size sand pit, where young children can have a messy play as if they were on the beach. So bring you beach bucket, flip flops, etc. The...More

I didn’t see anything like that when I was there, there is a reception for both the dog and cat area so they may have somewhere secure there to store things for you.

Yes, there is. Just follow the signs towards Zoo and you will be able to park by the gate. GBP2.70 for three hours.
