BedBUGS sleepovers

Are your kids more night owls then early birds? BedBUGS sleepovers give 7-11 year olds the chance to spend the night at ZSL London Zoo.

As well as checking out the residents in BUGS! we'll make sure you are kept busy right up until bedtime. There will be lots of activities which could include animal talks, tours, games or story-telling sessions - all animal themed of course!

You'll also be taken on a night time tour around the zoo, this is your chance to find out what really goes on once all of the visitors and keepers have gone home.
