Which beasts once roamed Trafalgar Square?
This month at Lates, explore the nature on our doorstep - past, present and future. Put your identification skills to the test in our Wildlife Garden, come face-to-face with British species you may have never even heard of, and discover how to help conserve our natural history.
British natural history is rich and varied, familiar and surprising.
The plants, animals and fossils found in the UK are the best studied and recorded in the world, yet they often go unnoticed in our day-to-day lives. So come along to Lates to celebrate and explore the diverse and ever-changing wildlife that exists on our shores.
