For a great day out, you can't beat Edinburgh Zoo. See Tian Tian and Yang Guang are the only two giant pandas in the UK, watch the chimpanzees on the Budongo Trail, see the rare Sun Bears Somnang and Rotana, as well as a walk through aviary, a Hill Top Safari and much more. Visitors can even get up close with some of the rarer and more unusual animal at the Animal Encounter Centre, or see some of the amazing things the animals can do at the Animal Antics show.

Directions

By Bus:
Edinburgh Zoo can be easily accessed via public transport with high frequency bus services from Edinburgh city centre. There are two bus stops outside the front entrance. Lothian Buses 12, X12, 26 and, 31 all stop outside and can be picked up near both Haymarket and Waverly Station or in the city centre. The 100 Airlink Service also stops regularly outside our front entrance and operates between Edinburgh Airport and the City Centre.

Lothian Buses Park & Ride

Conserving the environment is of extreme importance to the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland. Why not do your bit for the environment as well as save yourself time and money by leaving your car at one of the Park & Ride Services offered by Lothian Buses?

Please note that the Ingliston Park & Ride X12 service stops directly outside the Zoo!

(Please note: The X12 only operates Monday to Friday during peak times and on public holidays.)

By Train
There are two trains stations in the centre of Edinburgh; Edinburgh Waverley Station and Edinburgh Haymarket Station. Train timetables and ticket information are available from the First ScotRail website.

From Waverley and Haymarket stations, take the buses listed above (From Edinburgh City Centre) to Edinburgh Zoo.

Alternatively, if you are coming from further a field why not take the First Transpennine Express



By Car
Please see the Finding Us page for a clickable map.

Please note that car parking spaces are limited and there is a £4.00 car park admission cost. During the day, some parking can also be found within the vicinity of the Zoo but please note this space is also limited due to the residential nature of our location.

Alternatively why not leave your car at one of the Park & Ride Services offered by Lothian Buses

Please note that the Ingliston Park & Ride X12 service stops directly outside the Zoo!

(Please note: The X12 only operates Monday to Friday during peak times and on public holidays.)

To avoid missing your allocated time slot please leave plenty of travel time as we cannot guarantee re-allocating a new time slot.



By Bicycle
The Zoo is very close to Carrick Knowe cycle route (access from Downie Grove), which in turn connects by minor roads and other cycle routes to most of the city. To work out your best route, see the Spokes Edinburgh Cycle Map (available at most book and bike shops, or online at http://www.spokes.org.uk/wordpress/spokes-maps/). An online cycle route planner is also available at http://edinburgh.cyclestreets.net/.

Cycle parking (Sheffield racks) is available on the pavement immediately outside the zoo. There is currently no visitor bike parking on the site, but this is something we are looking into.
