I challenge you to find a better night out in London than Zoo Lates

Zoo Lates

Every Friday in June and July, London Zoo opens up its doors, from 6-10pm, for an adults only event where you can dress up and monkey around with your mates.  I met up with the girls beforehand to get into character.....

Zoo Lates is by far my favourite thing to do in London. It has every thing that you need in a night out; a whole range of delicious pop up food stalls, cabaret, comedy shows, animal talks and a silent disco, all mixed in among the usual herds, litters, shoal and packs of animals who live at the Zoo.

We had to head straight to the food stalls as Lizzie our cheetah friend of the group was eyeing up Catherine the zebra a bit suspiciously.

All the stalls were handing out amazing samples so it was a really tough decision but as soon as we tasted the hog roast we knew we'd found a winner!

I bet you are trying to lick the screen. I won't judge you - the crackling was mouth-wateringly good!

All fed and happy it was time to get exploring.

Loving the tails!

Getting all David Attenborough and up close with a squirrel. Technically not a zoo animal but worthy of a photo all the same.

The tigers were my chosen animal of the night but sadly they weren't quite as bothered to come and see me as I was to see them!

Thankfully my friends have no shame and are happy to do any pose I demand of them!

Now if you've ever fancied heading on down to London zoo but you weren't sure if it was worth it then this next guy will have you booking a ticket immediately. He is amazing!

He was absolutely massive and clearly the boss of the whole zoo.

Feeling a bit tipsy and not knowing which way to go, we decided to go Joey style and climb into the map.

Next up giraffes..

Then on to the zebras with a couple of pigeons thrown in for free.

We spotted this little guy munching ferociously on his dinner. You wouldn't want to be on the biting end of his gnashers!

After getting our fill of animal fun, we headed back to the main area where there is all sorts of exciting things to see and do. Most people choose to dress up as their favourite animal or wear face paints so everyone acts more childish than usual which leads to the best night out!

We grabbed ourselves some headphones and got busting our animal moves at the silent disco.

Sadly, its all over in the blink of an eye as the animals need us out by 10pm so they can get some shut eye before all the children arrive the next morning. 

It was a fantastic night out with a great bunch of girls / crazy animals. My sides were aching from all the laughing!! I would highly recommend Zoo Lates for everyone! 

We got a few strange looks on the tube home!
