This children's venue is ideal for 3 to 8 year olds. With a good mix of animals and a play area , cafe etc. everything to keep children amused for most of the day till their energy runs out. Easily accessible by public transport. Bit crowded in school holidays.

I love this zoo because it has the otters closest to our home <3 <3 It is well-run, with the animals clearly extremely well cared-for. Fantastic facilities and educational descriptions of all the inhabitants, and a lovely shop. Love this zoo and very happy to support it.

We went to the Children's Zoo at Battersea Park this afternoon and really enjoyed it, more to the point my six year old daughter loved it. We were there for 4 hours and she still wasn't ready to leave! I think it's wonderful that the zoo area combines both the zoo and lovely playground areas as well as great sand... More

Our grand children loved this place. We came early in the morning and spent half our day here. The animals are cute and very friendly. My grand daughters are 6 years old, but I recommend this place for families with younger kids too.

This is a small zoo and it's appropriate for little children. There is a playground. I went with my 1 year-old daughter and she was very happy to see the monkeys and the hens. it's a great place to spend couple of hours. There is a cafeteria and vending machines. The facilities for puschairs and buggies are very good.

Visited here recently with my wife and 3yr old Grandson and must admit I didn`t expect much. What a surprise we got. What a wonderful place for children and adults! The cost is resonable for London and the UK in general and very handily they will stamp your hand so you can explore the larger park and return at your... More

This is a small childrens zoo that has so much more to offer children than just animals. There is the reptile house, meercats and otters and you have the opportunity to watch them being fed, the monkey area, flamingos, donkeys and more that we didn't see. They all look well cared for. You'll find a small cafe and lots of... More

We very much appreciate your review and thank you for taking the time to post it. We do endeavour to show young children the wonder of animals and birds. If they learn when young to respect creatures who knows what their future maybe even following David Attenborough. We have found the play areas and our events work very well as... More

I had the weekend with my grand-daughter and thought it would be nice to go to the park, but as soon as you walk in use are faced with the play centre. There is very few animals and with all the play items around it was difficult to get her interested in the few animals that were available. Sadly we... More

Thank you for your review and as a grandmother I understand your comments. On entering the zoo all the play equipment is on the left and the animals/birds on the right so it is possible to choose play first and animals after or vice versa. I would love NOT to have any play equipment however for modern families there is... More
