The Experience - Lookout Lodge

Lookout Lodge is a fantastic experience for animal lovers of all ages or those simply wanting to escape everyday life for a night.

Whipsnade is a very special place during the day but it's even more magical at night. The zoo comes alive in a way that visitors don't usually get to experience.
