The wildest visitor attraction in Scotland. Edinburgh Zoo is home to over 1,000 rare and beautiful animals from around the world and home to the UK's only giant pandas and koalas.
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.
Visitors can get closer than ever before with the Sumatran tigers in their new enclosure – Tiger Tracks featuring a glass viewing tunnel as you come face to face with these beautiful animals. Or, why not visit our world famous Penguin Parade and the world’s only Knighted penguin, Sir Nils Olav.
Our newest attraction for the smallest of animals, Wee Beasties is brand new for 2017! 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.
Edinburgh Zoo is unlike any other visitor attraction in Scotland. As part of RZSS, one of Scotland’s leading conservation charities, the Park acts as a gateway to our wider work, both here in Scotland and in over 20 countries around the world.
