Zoo Detectives - The Missing Key!

For many years the case of the Zoo’s missing cabin key has remained a mystery- that is until now! If you are an animal enthusiast or a young budding detective, then Battersea Park Children’s Zoo needs you! Join us in helping to solve the case, meeting some furry and feathery friends along the way!

Children will embark on a guided tour of the zoo, whilst solving clues that will lead them to the next animal on the tour and eventually, the missing key! The children will also have the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the Zoo’s resident animals before enjoying a well earned lunch in our party cabin.

Our family-friendly zoo is the perfect place for kids to celebrate their birthday with their family, friends and the animals too!


Zoo birthday parties include

  •  A tour of the zoo where children will learn fun facts about the animals and answer clues to lead them onto the next stage of the tour.

  • The chance to handle some of the zoo’s minibeasts or reptiles- The opportunity to assist a zookeeper with feeding or making enrichment for one of our farmyard animals.

  • An animal themed craft activity.

  • The birthday child gets to paint a brick on ‘The Birthday Wall of Fame’!

Party food and goody bags are included and guests can stay on and enjoy the zoo after the party has finished.
