Owner description: 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.

Visited this zoo and paid around £9.00 each for adult admission. It may have been the fact that we are in the middle of Winter, but the only member of staff I saw was the person taking the admission fees, and the whole place seemed in need of some maintenance and renewal work. We saw a few monkeys, a couple... More

Went out to this zoo and was surprised with the animals selection the letting farm animals and the snakes and meerkats. Additionally the best part for us were the park grounds and the outdoor play areas. There is a sand play area, a fire engine, a digger which the kids can sit on and scoop, swings, climbing frame, little boat... More

we stayed in a nearby hotel. We paid £24 for a family of 3. I think the vast majority of users ae locals who have an annual pass and use it as a kids playground, as the playground is good. Animals seem well cared for but no "showstoppers"! kangaroos, otters, donkeys, rabbits, meerkats etc

I had to entertain 2 little girls age 8 and 9 whilst the boys were at the football in Wembley. We sat on the train and I let them take a look at the south eastern rail discount book. They picked out where we were going. We hopped on the train and had a lovely walk through the park to... More

We visited the zoo using a discount voucher and unfortunately we chose a very wet Sunday to visit. The website postcode doesn't actually get you to quite the right place, you need to locate the Chelsea gate entrance into the park (maybe if you can search for the Battersea peace pagoda on your satnav?). There is a reasonable sized pay... More

We first visited this specialist Children's Zoo a year or so ago and our grandchildren never forgot it, often asking "when can we go again?". Accordingly, we visited again recently and found it as charming and instructive as ever. Situated within the grounds of Battersea Park, it is thus handy for public transport and well signposted . There is good... More

Consequently I visited with 2 grown up daughters and 4 young grandsons (eldest 7) We ate lunch in a cheap (but tasty food) cafe not far from Battersea Park station (cross the road and to the left...

We had my daughters birthday party there this year. The staff were very instructive, and the play ground is very good. We had a pick-nick outside in the park so a a great and memorable day.

I visited the Zoo with my family.Located in the middle of a lovely park. Wide variety of activities for kids. They really enjoyed. But Zoo is small and there are only few animals.

I really recommend this place, its easy to reach and in the middle of a lovely park. Lots of animals and a great play area. The only "but" would be the cafe/bar but despite it we have been there 3 times in less than a year!
