About Edinburgh Zoo

Edinburgh Zoo is the second most popular paid-for attraction in Edinburgh, situated on the side of Corstorphine Hill. The zoo encompasses an area of 33 hectares and contains a wide diversity of animals. In addition to being a tourist attraction, the location is actively involved in scientific pursuits including studying animal behaviour and implementing conservation and sustainability initiatives.

Things to see at the Edinburgh Zoo include the highlighting Penguins Rock exhibit, representative of the location being the first in the world to breed penguins. Additionally, Budongo Trail features chimpanzees in an interactive environment and the Giant Panda exhibit houses the only giant pandas in the entire United Kingdom. Living Links serves as a field and research station, and Brilliant Birds is a fantastic walk through aviary.

Two bus stops at the front entrance of Edinburgh Zoo service Lothian buses from the Edinburgh City Centre at Waverley and Haymarket. Trains can be taken to the Waverley and Haymarket stations from which visitors can transfer to the buses. There is limited car parking available on site.

The idea for the Edinburgh Zoo was birthed out of the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland, officially founded in 1909. Thomas Hailing Gillespie served as the founding father, incorporating design ideas from the Tierpark Hagenbeck in Hamburg.
