The magical Battersea Park Children's Zoo is located next to the river Thames in Battersea Park. See monkeys, lemurs, coati and crawl down the tunnel to meet the meerkats. Talk to the mynah birds or chat to the parrots before stopping to watch the playful otters. Wriggly snakes, slimy giant snails and shy mice are all waiting in the Mouse House.

Out in the field see the Shetland pony, goats and lovable donkeys. See the pigs take a mud bath.

Have fun and learn in the interactive Adventure Playground. Climb, balance, swing, build and maybe get wet! Sit on a fire engine or tractor.
