Edinburgh Zoo is the only place in the UK to see Giant Pandas

To be honest, there is a good chance they might be asleep when you visit Edinburgh Zoo. They sleep a lot but they are super cute, so that makes it ok in our books! You need to book special Panda Experience tickets before you go, so if you want to see them – book well in advance because it is very popular!

The view on a clear day is simply amazing!

It’s time to be honest. Visit Edinburgh Zoo and you’ll be walking up a (slightly) steep hill. Don’t let this put you off because there is a land train to take you to the top and the view when you get there is spectacular. This is Edinburgh, of course, a view is compulsory.
