Boating in Battersea Park

Battersea Park has a fleet of rowing and pedal boats, each boat holding up to 5 persons. We also operate The Little Train which runs from the Adventure Playground, through the Tropical Garden and Fountains and up to the Zoo and Boating Lake.

In conjunction with the Gondola Restaurant nearby we are always very happy to host childrens’ parties.

Feel free to ring us if you have any special requests or requirements.
