Edinburgh Zoo,Edinburgh Information
Scotland's largest and most popular wildlife attraction! Discover over 1,000 animals - furry, feathery and scaly - from tiny blue poison arrow frogs to massive white rhinos. See over 150 penguins splashing about in Europe's largest penguin pool (complete with underwater viewing windows) and don't miss the penguins on their daily parade outside their enclosure (March to October weather permitting). Explore the fountain-filled evolution maze and the wonderful African Plains Experience, where a high level walkway takes you into the heart of the enclosure, overlooking ostrich, zebra and oryx. Join in the Animal Handling classes and enjoy brass rubbing, touch tables and talks during the Easter and Summer holidays. Pushchair hire, baby changing facilities, babyfood heating, highchairs and special children's menus available. Self-service restaurant, snack kiosks (in Summer), picnic area and lovely giftshop.
