Twilight at London Zoo - Adults-Only Late Opening

30 Jun - 22 Jul 2022


This summer, we’re staying open later just for adults - so forget the crowds and discover the secrets of the Zoo after hours. 


From 6 - 10 pm on Thursdays and Fridays, our adults-only Twilight tickets (18+) are the perfect opportunity to explore the wonderful wildlife at the Zoo and find out what our animals get up to when the crowds have gone home. 

With 15,000 amazing animals* to explore, pop-up activities, and experiences across the Zoo, Twilight at London Zoo makes for a great evening escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Relax into the evening with chilled music, an array of street food, and because it’s adults-only, you can grab some refreshments from the botanical bar in the Secret Enchanted Garden, deep in the heart of the Zoo. 

With limited tickets available, you’ll need to be fast! Snap up your London Zoo Twilight Ticket today.
