Edinburgh Zoo is owned by The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS). Set in 82 acres of sloping parkland, the Zoo is situated three miles to the west of Edinburgh city centre. Apart from getting close to over 1,000 rare and endangered animals, there are many different ways to enjoy your day out. You can experience a busy programme of educational events and activities – ranging from keeper talks through to hands-on animal encounters – and a wide-range of eating experiences, several play areas and a fantastic gift shop.
The Zoo is also one of Scotland’s most popular visitor attractions, open every day of the year including Christmas Day.
