About the event
Discover an amazing day out with over 1,000 incredible animals from around the world, just minutes from the city centre. No two visits to Edinburgh Zoo are ever the same!
All your favourite animals are waiting to welcome you back from our parading penguins to our famous giant pandas. You won’t want to miss out on meeting our newest arrivals either – we have welcomed giraffes back to Edinburgh for the first time in 15 years and you can be among the first to meet our new herd.
As part of the Edinburgh Science Festival, we are hosting family trails and online workshops, activities, quizzes and more. You can soak up the fresh air and atmosphere on a wild day out at the zoo or enjoy our science and conservation events from the comfort of your own home. Either way, we’ll see you during #EdSciFest!
