Penguins; that’s the deal here, for the zoo breeds them. Exotic birds, lions, monkeys, koalas and giant pandas are the zoo’s other attractions. There are even ex-military personnel among the animals, which include Wojtek the bear and Sir Nils Olav the penguin. Highly respected for its animal behavorial research and conservation work, the zoo recieves over half a million visitors every year. It’s location is highly convenient, with a number of reasonable hotels and a bustlng market nearby. Really, this is one of the cutest zoos you’ll ever see.

  • This zoo is definitely the best I have ever visited. The animals look in great condition and they have a large variety. It is clear that they have the animals best interest in mind and know how to treat them. It is easy to navigate and a lot of the exhibits you can interact with which is very fun for kids. The restaurant wasn't perfect but I have found that to be a recurring theme in attractions like this. Overall, I highly recommend this zoo and is perfect for a day out.

  • Great zoo, wasn't too crowded when we went. Koalas were unavailable unfortunately, did see one of the Pandas although fairly briefly. The inside Panda viewing area was closed. Saw the penguin parade which was great and also was lucky to see some Scottish wildcats and kittens! Be warned some sections of the zoo are very steep! They do seem to have transport available for the steeper sections but it wasn't operating when we visited.

  • Spot on, helpful staff and lots of choice. Would 100% recommend a stop off if your in the area, 5 star service, the little ones loved it as well. Will definitely be back for multiple visits. Cannot complain at the price either. Cheap as chips.

  • Loved it. Wasn't busy or over crowded so felt safe and sound with just me and my two kids. Penguins stole the day along with the koalas. Bit of a no show from the pandas though which was a bit of a shame.

  • Had such a great day at Edinburgh zoo would highly recommend. All of the animals have nice and spacious enclosures and the animals talks were interesting and led by passionate members of staff. we were also able to get some great photos of the pandas.
