We came with our youngest 2 children after purchasing reduced rate tickets through littlebird. The children enjoyed their visit but were quickly bored by the limited amount of animals. There seemed to be a lot of empty enclosures. They did however have a fab time...More

Had a lovely hour spent walking round this zoo. Lots of small animals to enjoy, rats, lemurs, meerkats, rabbits, wallabies, donkeys etc A real treasure in the heart of Battersea Park.

Good place for small children to get close seeing smaller animals, rather steep entrance fees (GBP9.50 per adult and even 7.50 per child over 2). Maintenance and particularly eating facilities could be improved.

The overwhelming feeling when walking round this zoo is that 20 years ago it might have been quite fun. Fast forward to now and it’s tired and dirty, partially closed and disappointing. What a shame!

Large enough to keep children entertained for at least an hour, and despite being a “petting zoo” there are animals such as cougars, snakes, and exotic lizards which increases the interest level. No sharks though. Easy enough to find and access within Battersea Park too....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.
