Join us to search for bats in the heart of London...

Thursday 2 May, 8:15pm - 9:45pm 

This hour and a half tour takes place at dusk, as London's bats are coming out to play. 

  • Be guided through Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park at night to search for bat species such as common pipistrelles, soprano pipistrelles and noctules.
  • Play a fun quiz to separate bat facts from bat fiction and enjoy using bat detectors that make the bats' echo-location calls audible to the human ear. 
  • Bats are not the only creatures out at night - owl calls may add to the evening's atmosphere and perhaps a curious fox will cross our path as well!
