Thought a trip to the zoo was just for kids?
ZSL London Zoo is set to change your mind this year - with the launch of its new Zoo Nights for over 18s.
With an array of after-hours explorations for night-owls to embark on, live music and more than 17,000 animals to visit, Zoo Nights takes place every Friday from June 2-30, from 6pm-10pm.
If you know your tigers from your tapirs, you can prove it by taking part in Zooniversity Challenge, an interactive quiz show that will test guests on their animal knowledge.
Or you can master your forensic investigation techniques as you help zoo experts tackle a case of illegal wildlife trade in a whodunit-style crime trail around the zoo.
Guests can find out what animals really get up to after dark in The Birds and the Bees - Uncut, where guides will help you unravel the mysteries of sex in the animal kingdom.
Adults will also be able to embark on a self-guided tour of the zoo before the sun goes down, where they'll see the zoo's animals and take in a packed programme of feeds and talks.
But feeding time is not just for the animals as visitors will be able to browse the Zoo’s Street Food Festival with an array of treats on offer from London’s finest food vendors, including Indian nibbles, Mexican snacks and delicious cakes.
As the sun finally sets over the zoo, guests can set up camp with their fellow explorers to listen to live music on the lawn.
