Zoo Nights at ZSL London Zoo / Summer in the City

I visited ZSL London Zoo for the first time in years last Friday to celebrate Zoo Nights – their brand new after-hours adventure this Summer. The event takes place every Friday between 2nd June – 14th of July 6:00pm-10.00pm.

This is such a fun experience for adults (18+ only) with an array of after-hours explorations to enjoy, including live music and entertainment and more than 17,000 animals to visit – such a great way to celebrate summer in the city!

We went on our own sunset tour to explore the wildlife and saw so many animals at feeding time, which was really interesting, you could even take part in a guided tour ‘The Birds and Bees – uncut’ to learn all about animal reproduction. There was a really fun interactive quiz show which Mark was very good at, and I learned a thing or two 🙂 

Being a foodie I really enjoyed browsing around the Street Food Festival with so many yummy things to eat and drink but my favourite part of the evening was chilling out at the Light Lounge. There were comfy bean bags to sit on and enjoy the live music and entertainment as the sun set over the Zoo. The perfect night to spend with your partner or friends enjoying a cocktail or two.

This is such a great way to start the weekend, I’d highly recommend it if you’re looking for a different kind of experience this summer. Zoo Nights will run every Friday from 6:00pm to 10:00pm with everyone over the age of 18 invited to experience the magic of the Zoo after-hours! Tickets are £17.50 and you can book here, but hurry there’s limited availability www.zsl.org/zoonights
