Edinburgh Zoo

Set in 82 acres of sloping parkland, Edinburgh Zoo is Scotland’s wildest visitor attraction. Just a 10-minute journey out of the city centre by bus or car, it is home to over 1,000 rare and beautiful animals and the UK’s only giant pandas. Get closer than ever before as you come face to face with the Sumatran tigers in their new enclosure – Tiger Tracks, or witness the world famous Penguin Parade featuring the knighted penguin, Sir Nils Olav.

Why not visit Edinburgh Zoo’s newest attraction, Wee Beasties, which is home to a number of exciting species including reptiles, amphibians and insects. With plenty of children’s play areas, restaurants and picnic spots, Edinburgh Zoo makes for an ideal family day out. Early arrival is recommended as panda tickets are available only on the day of your visit on a first come first serve basis.
