Last week we attended one of London zoo's late evening openings. For adults only, with bars open across the zoo and pop-up food village plus animals on parade, what is not to like? We were among the relatively few people over 40 present, as the place was packed with 20-something's drinking cocktails, some with painted faces (tigers were popular) others in full animal costume, partying away. I think the animals must have been a bit bemused!
We saw the new penguin enclosure, which is a definite improvement, and admired their looks (they seem to love the attention), and were amazed by the corals in the aquarium, as well as visited some nocturnals like the armadillo (faster than you would imagine).
We, by the way, did not wear animal costumes....
