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.

We had a great time at the zoo. It’s a small zoo which is great for kids as it’s not too overwhelming and you get to see the animals really up close which is lovely. We also got to touch a rabbit and feed rabbits...More

My kids and I LOVED it. The zoo is not too big, so my children were not overwhelmed with too many animals to see, or exhausted with too much walking. There were also many play areas for different ages, so all my children and their...More

Firstly the price - £34 for two seniors, an adult and her two and a half year old son - for a children's playground (with several pay extra "amusements") and an uninspiring collection of small animals - so not worth it. Limited information on surprisingly...More

I found that the knowledge of the Zoo Keepers were very informative and we were able to understand everything they told us about each animal. The park was very well set out, and the children`s play park was wonderful.
