LATE AFTERNOON SLOTS: August Bank Holiday weekend!

Explore ZSL Whipsnade Zoo as the sun goes down this bank holiday weekend (29-31 August 2020), with a late afternoon slot giving you the chance to discover how active many of our animals are in the early evening.

The Zoo will close at 8pm instead of 6pm, with extra tickets being released for a brand new 4pm time slot.

See our lions, tigers and lynx prowling as their natural instinct kicks in to get ready to hunt as the sun starts to fade; and with luck, there might even be a beautiful sunset – often spectacular for our penguins and rhinos thanks to Whipsnade’s position on top of the Chiltern Hills.
