Visit Battersea Old Windsor

Our Old Windsor centre has been open since 1979. It operates in exactly the same way as the flagship London centre but on a slightly smaller scale. Visitors are welcome to come and meet our friendly staff and the animals in our care.

Important notice

Between Wednesday 29th August and Sunday 2nd September (inclusive), Priest Hill will be closed to traffic while gas mains connection works are undertaken. Battersea Old Windsor will still be open and accessible to the public, however we advise all visitors to click below for further details.

Travel, road closure & diversion details +

The closure will affect the length of Priest Hill (A328), including St John’s Beaumont School and its junction with the main entrance to Battersea. Advance warning signs will be in place.

Both the entrance and exit from the Battersea Old Windsor site will be accessible but only when approaching the site from the river end of the hill (A308).

Access through the closed area of road will be available for pedestrians and dismounted cyclists and equestrians.

Access for emergency vehicles, residences and businesses will be via a diversion route which will be Windsor road, Egham By Pass, Egham Hill and St Jude’s Road. Surrey Council have provided diversion route help.

The bus route to the site will also be disrupted. During the works, we advise visitors to use the Old Windsor, Bells of Ouzeley bus stop, on either side of the road.
