Edinburgh Zoo

Enjoy a really unique wild day out, in one of Scotland’s leading tourist attractions at Edinburgh Zoo.

Set in lovely hillside parkland, just west of the city centre, within easy reach of the airport, the Zoo is home to almost 1,000 rare and amazing animals, many of which are endangered in the wild, from the giant White rhino to the tiny Partula snails.

Enjoy the spacious meeting rooms and classic period features of the majestic Mansion House, an 18th Century baronial mansion in the heart of the Zoo, or expand into the 170 seat lecture theatre and break-out rooms of the nearby modern Budongo Lecture Theatre

Combine your company business with one or more of our exciting animal-related experiences on offer from the Zoo Education staff, such as animal handling, a team building trail or a talk on an animal species of your choice. Who would forget a conference that included coming face to face with a python or tarantula?

With over 80 acres to explore, Edinburgh Zoo can offer a special corporate event or function to remember, out-with normal opening hours. From staff BBQ’s to family corporate days and Weddings, the Zoo appeals to all.
