Welcome to The London Bat Group’s new website. Please bear with us as we are still updating some of our pages!

The London Bat Group is a voluntary group working throughout the Greater London area to protect and enhance London’s bat populations. We hope you enjoy our website.

There are 18 species of bat in the UK, 17 of which are known to be breeding here, to find out more visit our bat cave. Bats have historically been greatly misunderstood, but I hope you agree with us when we say they are fascinating and amazing animals which are so enjoyable to watch as they fly over our gardens and open spaces at dusk.

Bats can be seen in all of the London Boroughs and there are a number of excellent sites around Greater London where you should be able to see bats. Our records officer would be very happy to hear about your bat sightings!

The London Bat Group organise a series of public bat walks and surveys, mainly during the summer months. Click here to see upcoming events.

If you love bats as much as we do please support us by becoming a member of the London Bat Group! You can also like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter to keep up to date on upcoming events and bat news.
