Half Term Family Activity: Monkey Encounters at Battersea Zoo

This children’s zoo in Battersea Park has lemurs, donkeys, a mouse house, miniature Shetland ponies and meerkats, and is a great spot to take the kids over the summer. Don’t miss Emperor Tamarin Monkey Days tomorrow, where your little monkeys can meet these amazing little moustachioed creatures.

Monkey feeding time is at 11:30 am and 3 pm, and throughout the day your family can enjoy monkey-themed storytelling, colouring and badge-making. Another date for your diary is Stag Beetle Activity Day (Sunday 27 June).

Location: Battersea Park Children’s Zoo, Battersea, London, SW11 4NJ

Admission: Most activities are free and drop-in, but the usual entrance fee applies (£25 for a family of 4, under 2s go free).
