Edinburgh Zoo is located just outside Edinburgh city centre and it is home to more than 1,000 different animals. The stars at the zoo are the penguins and each day there is a Penguin Parade when they march to the swimming pool and dive in. The zoo has various picnic areas, play areas for children, shops and restaurants. Mansion House at Edinburgh Zoo was built in 1793 and today it has been converted into a restaurant.

The zoo covers around 82 acres of land and is one of the most visited places in Scotland. Some of the animals you will meet are the polar bears, monkeys, tigers, giraffes, lions, hippopotamuses and many different birds. Another attraction at the zoo is the Hilltop Safari which will take you to the top of the zoo which is set on a hill. The service is free of charge and is available every day of the year except Christmas Day.
