Battersea Park Children's Zoo offers a nice, pleasant day out for families with young kids, without 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 is also a butterfly garden and duck pond.

Childrens can get up close and personal with some of the animals in the 'animal encounters', and there's also a play area and cafe.

Craig has been for a look and written a review of Battersea Park Children's Zoo on his blog.

If your kids enjoy this place then they might fancy a trip to Spitalfields City Farm as well, which is more like a petting zoo.

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 unless you want them to walk around with sullen faces all day we enjoyed it though. its nice to see little kids get excited about things that we wouldn't even stop at, but they loved getting up close to all the little animals. there also some rides and boats for them”
