Events & Experiences

Christmas isn't cancelled at Edinburgh Zoo this year but it might look a bit different.    

Party nights will need to wait for 2021, but you can still celebrate at the zoo with a variety of options available for your colleagues and their families at our spectacular light trail, Edinburgh Zoo's Christmas Nights.

Your evening will be merry and bright this festive season with a magical journey to the North Pole and back. A spectacular light trail around the zoo will take you on an incredible voyage, passing through Penguins Rock by moonlight and exploring an enchanted ice forest on your way to visit Santa’s workshop.

From a 2 hour experience to an exclusive takeover of the zoo for 1500 people, the RA team are ready to create a special evening after a challenging year.   The team would love to hear from you if you had something else in mind of course, but rest assured that a wide range of safety measures have been put in place to make sure your guests can enjoy the evening.
