London Zoo Lodges' Festive Experience

Celebrate the festive season with a VIP overnight experience

Are you looking to kick off Christmas with a roarsome adventure? Look no further than London Zoo’s festive extravaganza! Experience the enchanting London Zoo Lodges’ Festive Experience – a limited series of magical sleepovers running from Monday 18th to Saturday 30th December.

Animal-loving families can enjoy a Christmassy overnight stay with after-hour tours of the conservation zoo, meeting hundreds of incredible creatures along the way. Guests will be treated to delicious food, mulled wine, hot chocolate and lots of festive fun for a Christmas to remember.

Christmas Themed Lodges at London Zoo

Check into your very own Christmas themed lodge nestled in the heart of London Zoo. Head out on your first animal adventure – an exclusive tour of the Zoo’s epic Land of the Lions and discover how Asiatic lions Bhanu and Arya will be celebrating the festive season.

Craft Christmas presents for the animals, roast marshmallows on the fire pit and enjoy an exclusive behind-the-scenes nighttime adventure to meet London Zoo’s nocturnal residents. Spend the night snoozing close to the lions and wake up to the roaring sounds of the morning. Before the Zoo opens its gates, you’ll enjoy a hearty breakfast and an exclusive morning tour to deliver presents to the animals. You’ll also find out what the other 15,000 residents of London Zoo might be getting this Christmas!

Visitors can make the most of their day by delving into the daytime wonders of the ‘Magic of Christmas at London Zoo,’ or hop over to Whipsnade Zoo in Bedfordshire to meet elephants, rhinos, and more! This unique experience grants access to both ZSL conservation zoos for two full days of exploration and festive fun.

By joining the Zoo’s Christmas sleepover, families are not just celebrating; they’re also lending a paw to ZSL’s critical conservation work worldwide. This means supporting cool projects like the Partula snail reintroduction program and helping protect amazing creatures like Angelsharks, Mongolian camels, and Sumatran tigers. It’s holiday fun that makes a real difference!
