At the end of May I was invited to attend a night time event at Edinburgh Zoo. I’ve always loved the zoo so what could be better than exploring the it at night with a glass of wine in one hand and some bacon and macaroni cheese in the other?

I was super excited to be heading to the zoo with my other half on this sunny May evening. The dinosaurs face above just about sums it up.

We were given a couple of vouchers each for food and drink and then off we went to explore the zoo. There was one main area that had a few tents for food (gourmet burgers, noodles etc.), a bar offering a range of drinks, a live band and a little stage with other performances. Everyone was having a great time enjoying having a drinks in the open air.

We went for a walk around and at the top of the zoo we found their new dinosaur exhibition… There were dinosaurs – moving, roaring dinosaurs!

The view from the top of the zoo is absolutely spectacular – zebras and everything!

We had an absolutely fantastic night at the zoo – it was really well organised and the weather was perfect. Everyone there seemed to be in such high spirits and really embracing the atmosphere – this includes the animals!
