Here's your chance to observe the cute little bats that live around the grounds of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. With a bit of luck you'll be able to see at least three different species feeding over the water: common pipistrelles, soprano pipistrelles and noctules.

Bat detectors will be used so their echo-location calls wil become audible to the human ear, and owl calls may add to the overall atmosphere.

The nocturnal stroll will last for around an hour and a half, so make sure that you come prepared with suitable clothes and footwear.

This particular walk is suitable for children. Please note that all children must be supervised by an adult, and there can be no more than 3 children per adult.
