Visitors to ZSL London Zoo will be able to experience a new, festive themed illuminated trail from November 22 – Jan 1.

The attraction will be transformed this Christmas with its own after-dark experience created in partnership with Raymond Gubbay and designed by Culture Creative, the team behind “Christmas at Kew”.

Shimmering with seasonal sparkle, the outdoor festive trail “will offer something for everyone” as visitors follow a mile-long path through ZSL London Zoo scattered with twinkling lights. Greeted by festive sights and sounds, visitors will wander amongst seasonal colour and through “glistening tunnels of light”.

Visitors will be surrounded by sparkle as the pathway leads them through the “light vortex” and into contrasting tunnels, festooned by a canopy of more than 100,000 pea-lights. The event will also include “frosty snowflakes, shimmering stars and gigantic baubles”, there will also be an 11-metre-tall “sledge tree”, made from 365 illuminated wooden sledges.
