Reopening for Edinburgh residents

22/02/2021 in Edinburgh Zoo

As current Scottish Government guidance means we can open our gates to provide a safe, outdoor environment for City of Edinburgh residents, we are reopening the zoo on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays starting Friday 26 February. 

Tickets for 26 – 28 February are only available to members and prepaid ticket holders as a thank you from our charity for your support during this difficult time. March weekend tickets will go on sale to everyone next week, and we may add extra dates if there is demand.  

Safety comes first and it is important everyone follows government guidance to protect themselves and others. This means you must not travel from outside the local authority area or gather in groups of more than two households with more than two adults and everyone must book a time slot online in advance.  

Please respect the new ‘rules of the road’ at the zoo and our dedicated teams who are there to make sure everyone has a safe and fun day out. 

Remember we can only open outdoors which means all indoor animal areas and our gift shop must remain closed for now. Toilets and changing facilities, takeaway only catering and ‘Click & Collect’ options from our online shop will all be available.  

We really appreciate your support and patience and kindly ask that you read the information below before getting in touch (you can find contact details at the bottom of this page).  

Hopefully you can visit us soon – we look forward to seeing you!
