If you're looking for a nice, easy day out for young children, then why not give Battersea Park Children's Zoo a try. They'll get to see plenty of animals up-close, but without all the crowds and expense of London Zoo.

Whilst it doesn't have the range of animals that London Zoo does, you can still find plenty of birds (emus, cockatiels, parrots, finches), monkeys, meerkats, lemurs and farmyard animals -- including ponys, donkeys, goats, pigs, chickens and rabbits. There's also a butterfly garden and duck pond. Note: there are no big animals like lions and tigers (for those you need to go to London Zoo).

There's also an adventure playground with climbing frames and vehicles, and a cafe for a sit-down and a rest (that one's more for the parents!).

You might like to read Craig's review of Battersea Park Children's Zoo on his blog before you go. Feel free to ask him some questions, or write your own review on the forum.

If your kids enjoy Battersea Park Children's Zoo then maybe you can take them to Spitalfields City Farm as well, which is more like a petting zoo (it has less animals than Battersea, but more opportunity to get up close to them).

gbudd – “quite a nice little zoo for young kids. i thought it was all going to be farmyard animals, like in a petting zoo, but they've actually got some more exotic animals like monkeys and meerkats. but its really aimed at little kids -- dont take your teenagers… more”
