"Recently we celebrated my son and his friend's 6th birthday at the Battersea Park Zoo and we all had a wonderful experience. The Battersea Park Zoo team made their birthday celebrations so very special. Everything, from planning the event until settling the bill, was very well organised and efficient. We also truly appreciated that we were not rushed and we could fully enjoy the experience."
"Very fun day out for my toddler and us. Small enough to get round in an hour and different animals to wow our daughter. She particularly liked the several different play areas. Located in the beautiful Battersea Park. Easy to get to and had lunch at one of the cafes in the park. Overall a very fun day out!"
"My rating is relative to the price. Great zoo for children. A couple of dozen enclosures, several play areas, Play areas include diggers, a sand pit, a helicopter, and some boats. Animals include otters, goats, amphibians, meerkats, and more. The whole zoo takes about a little over an hour - unless kids spend a lot of time the the play areas."
"What amazing work the staff here are doing for conservation and breeding of endangered species. Absolutely blown away ... Saw the staff with visiting school children on an educational tour, they loved it ! Don't be fooled by the size. Their achievements here are incredible 👏 I've adopted the Armadillo for my grandson "
"Great for small children. Myself and my family visited today and wanted to say, what a lovely day."
"Just back from a fantastic zoo keeper experience with my daughter. We went for the gold experience as it was her 8th birthday present and she got to hang out with 3 lovely keepers and hands on with a whole variety of animals including her favourite, Peludo the armadillo. Thank you to the keepers for making her feel special and teaching us both about the beautifully kept animals."
