Next month, London Zoo will be having regular late-evening openings for adults only to enjoy the summer air surrounded by tigers and penguins, but not children.
The adult-only lates will be every Thursday and Friday in July, and the zoo will be open from 6pm-10pm, with the last entry at 9pm. In addition, apart from the general opening of the zoo later than normal, there will also be a bar and a number of add-on tours.
Evening entry to the zoo is £19.95 and tickets can be booked here.
