Back by popular demand, Santa and Mrs Claus have managed to find some time in their busy winter schedules to come along to Edinburgh Zoo to meet our daytime visitors!
There are different ways you can enjoy the festive fun this December, after booking your day admission tickets to the zoo:
Our daytime Santa's Grotto
On selective dates from 4 December – 24 December, the grotto will be available to book in five minute time slots from 11.15am–3.45pm.
Breakfast with the Clauses
If you fancy a real Christmas treat, why not book a full day experience which includes early access to the zoo before the gates open...
Make your day at Edinburgh Zoo extra special this winter by joining Santa and Mrs Claus for breakfast!
On selective dates from 4 December– 24 December from 9am–11am, families can enjoy breakfast with the Clauses in our Grasslands Café with festive snowman pancakes, craft activities and a story from Mrs Claus!
Add a touch of homemade charm to your Christmas by taking a wreath making workshop with our expert gardens team. We'll show you how to create a beautiful 14-inch sustainable wreath decoration, with materials naturally sourced from Edinburgh Zoo.
Each session is three hours long, and suitable for participants aged 13+. Participants under 16 years must be attending with an adult. There is one standard ticket type for this event which includes entry into Edinburgh Zoo. Hot drinks and festive sweet treats will also be provided.
