Head to the outskirts of Edinburgh to spend a day perusing the Edinburgh Zoo; with over 1,000 animals to meet, it’s going to take you at least that long. The Zoo is committed to its animal welfare and conservation programs, but there’s still visitor activities that let you get way up close – you can feed rainbow lorikeets or line up for the daily penguin parade (these penguins live large – they have the biggest penguin enclosure in the world!).
Among the many animals to meet are leopards, lions, otters, chimpanzees and the UK’s only koalas. There are also Animal Antics shows that show off the animals' natural abilities and allow for audience participation.
The Edinburgh pass is fanastic value, managed to see lots more of the attractions than we would have been able to afford. The information centre at Wavereley Station was also really friendly and helpful: would reccomend.
Worth noting that Camera Obscura doesnt close till 6, where as dungeons and dynamic world both stop entry at 4pm at low season, so if we did again wed shuffle it around and do camera obscura lastas we ran out of time for dungeons.
Seven days in Edinburgh were excellent. We booked an apartment that was 15 minutes by bus from downtown. The weather was perfect for this time of yera, 15-20 degrees Celsius, and rain was just for one day. Each day we were in the best-known places and detinations of Edinburgh. We head breakfast in the apartment, a light lunch and generous donner in beautiful restaurant of Edinburgh.Finally, the Holiday was wonderful.
The zoo is easily reached by public transport; from the city center, buses 12, 26, 31, 100 and 48/X48 go to stops located directly outside it. You can also take trains from Edinburgh Waverley Station and Edinburgh Haymarket Station.
