Join the party animals at ZSL London Zoo…

Experience ZSL London Zoo after dark at ZOO NIGHTS 2009 Friday 7th August, 6.30pm – 10.00pm

[UKPRwire, Thu Jul 23 2009] It’s nearly time to get your glad rags on and join the party animals at ZSL London Zoo for the wildest night of the year – Zoo Nights!

For one night only, ZSL London Zoo will be opening its doors after dark, so that visitors can enjoy an incredible night out in the company of the most fascinating creatures on Earth.

Don’t miss our colossal new exhibit, Giants of the Galapagos, home to three giant tortoises. Feel free to have a nose around their sparkling new home, but you may need to give the tortoises some privacy…although Dirk may be considered old at 70 years, he still likes to get it on with the ladies!

Make sure you catch the special evening version of Animals in Action, our live animal show where the Zoo’s inhabitants show off their flying, leaping, and crawling skills, or go on an Animal Adventure in our new children’s zoo and have fun exploring the interactive exhibits by twilight.

Enjoy a drink - or two - from the bar as you take in the sounds of the Jazz band on the lawn, and make sure you end the night in style with our stunning light and dance finale in the central court.

With food, drinks, entertainment and a chance to spend a sultry summer evening in the most exciting venue in London, Zoo Nights is a fantastic event for the whole family to enjoy. Book online now at for this summer spectacular and receive a 10% discount on the ticket price.
