Battersea Park Children's ZooBattersea Park Children's Zoo is home to a host of glorious creatures. There are farmyard animals, lemurs, otters and monkeys, as well as peacocks which roam the enclosure. It is a beautiful spot, and a friendly well-run attraction which was saved from closure after a year-long struggle between the council and local residents. Although comparatively small, Battersea Park Children's Zoo is a wonderful institution. The animals are clearly happy in their, mainly outdoor, accommodation and the setting itself is magical. There's also the opportunity to have fun and learn in the Adventure Playground and sit on a fire engine or tractor. This little-known gem is a great place to go with younger children as part of a stroll round the Battersea area. The zoo entrance is at Chelsea Gate on Queenstown Road, Battersea Park, near the Peace Pagoda close to the river.
