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.

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.

This little petting zoo is prefect for preschoolers. After a few days of dragging our 11 month old around London we bought her here. It was just right, small, quite and peaceful. It took us about an hour to walk around and look at all...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
