Edinburgh Zoo

Opened in 1913, Edinburgh Zoo is home to almost 1,000 rare and endangered animals, including the famous giant pandas, Tian Tian and Yang Guang. Providing a perfect day out for couples or families the zoo is just a short hop from our Edinburgh hotels.

Set in 82 acres of sloping parkland and just a 10-minute journey out of the city centre by bus or car.

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.

Or 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.
