Disabled Access Day at Edinburgh Zoo
Edinburgh Zoo is holding a special disabled access day this weekend, celebrating its existing access features and creating new opportunities.
Disabled Access Day is to celebrate good access and create opportunities for people to try something new. The day is about highlighting the fantastic access that already exists at Edinburgh Zoo such as sensory experiences, level access, hearing loops and of course a warm welcome.
On the day the venue will be highlighting the Mobility Vehicle and ‘Sensory Experience’ in Budongo Trail. A BSL interpreter will also accompany the daily talks programme and a hoist and trolley will be available in the reception area disabled toilets. (Please note: To ensure visitor comfort and safety, we ask that any visitor who would like to use the hoist, to please bring their own sling.)
As well as this be sure to keep an eye out for some very special guests making their way around the park!
Don’t forget that visitors who require special assistance are offered free admission for one accompanying carer when they pay the full adult/child price. For more information on this, mobility friendly maps and guides, and information on wheelchair provision, please click here.
Disabled Access Day at Edinburgh Zoo will take place on Saturday, March 16.
