Battersea Park Children’s Zoo And Walking Through Battersea Park
If you are visiting (or living in) London and can’t decide between the London Aquarium and London Zoo or have already visited both attractions – let me add another option for a lovely sunny day to spend with animals:
The Battersea Parl Children’s Zoo
Yes, as the name says, it is a zoo for children. I would definitely recommend going to the Battersea Zoo if you have small children up to the age of 6. This zoo is generally less crowded and offers much more for small children. Being more of secret or alternative London sightseeing option, the zoo is also less busy during weekends and there is generally no need to queue for tickets. Two more great benefits for choosing this zoo opposed to London Zoo is that children are actually able to see a lot more during feeding times than in bigger zoos and that there are various little playgrounds for kids and space for picnics throughout the zoo.
In case you were wondering, also ‘bigger’ kids will have a good time at this Battersea Park Children’s Zoo. So I went there last Saturday with my granny and my boyfriend and we had an amazing time. Although we have certainly passed the age of the average person in the playground I had the impression that we at least had as much fun :) Also the animals were really cute and overall it was just such a pleasant day. Although my granny did not join us in the playground, strolling through the zoo is also a good option for things to do in London with your grandmother (in addition to your afternoon tea marathon!).
The zoo is located in Battersea Park which is also great for a nice walk or picnic after your Zoo visit. During summer weekends there are often events in the park like live music which are a nice change to relaxing on the grass and enjoying a London summer day.
