For the month of August, London’s Zoo hosts Zoo Lates every Friday night. The unusual happening turns the London Zoo into a late night fête complete with a picnic, bar and a chance to mingle with the animals, all after the zoo has closed.
Zoo Lates are both informative and fun, with Zookeepers starting off the night with animal lectures and tours of the zoo. Later in the evening, guests can sip their Pimm’s at a silent disco, complete with headphones, so as not to disturb the sleeping animals.
New this year, and following the picnicking renaissance, late-nighters can also enjoy a gourmet picnic prepared by celebrity chef, Angela Hartnett.
With proceeds from Zoo Lates benefiting the Zoo, this event is more than just another option for spicing up London nightlife.
