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.

A High price for this zoo with very less number of animals is what we found and got disappointed. Can have some eats in the café, and that's it .

I recently took my young grandson to this zoo. Unfortunately he was more interested in the tractor and fire engine due to the lack of petting animals (sheep and goats etc). Even the two pigs are from Australia and many of the other animals were...More

Feel yourself lucky if you can touch an animal behind the fences. No sheeps, no goats, no cows. Very small area. And the entry fee is overpriced.

Great zoo that is not too big or busy. Went with my 18 months old son. They got a big play area for children. Café is ok not the nicest.

The park's website gives travel tips. We tubed to Sloane Square and walked from there (about 15 mins). The TFL (or even Google Maps on a smartphone/ tablet) website will give you details of buses that pass to the east and... More

I'd say so, there's opportunities for safe interaction with some of the animals. There are play areas and benches and it was no trouble getting there on public transport from Archway. It's a small scale operation and what it... More
