    Kids will have a ball at magical Battersea Park Children’s Zoo, located in the heart of Battersea Park in London. Here they can learn about endangered species such as our native hedgehogs and the very rare Scottish wildcat, as well as enjoying the playful antics of capuchin monkeys, Asian short-clawed otters, cotton-top tamarins, meerkats and more. They can say hello to Dusty and Smokey, our friendly donkeys, or Feather, the Shetland pony. Emus Ant and Dec are fun to watch, along with the playful coati, with their cute faces, the beautiful ring-tailed lemurs or the busy harvest mice.


    See birds, insects and reptiles up close, such as bearded dragons, rare Bali starlings and Muckle the barn owl. With regular story times and plenty of fun-packed activities, plus a life-sized helicopter, tractor and fire engine to play on too, it’s a world of wonder for little ones.

    We’ve been working hard to introduce new hygiene and social distancing measures to ensure you can enjoy a safe, wild adventure and leave the everyday behind at Chessington World of Adventures Resort.

    Enter other worldly lands and fly like a bat on Vampire, soar like a dragon on Dragon’s Fury or slither like a snake on Kobra. Head on safari to roam with rhino and gallop with giraffe on an off road adventure.

    Trek with your little monkeys to Trail of the Kings and tread alongside jungle giants including lions and gorillas, before getting lost beneath the waves in the SEA LIFE Centre.

    A Theme Park with over 40 rides and attractions. A Zoo with more than 1,000 animals. Chessington IS Britain’s wildest adventure!
