Events & Experiences

13th, 14th, 17th & 18th of October

This October we are offering fun filled mornings for children to enjoy a Penguins and Pancake breakfast at Edinburgh Zoo!

The exclusive Penguin experience begins at 9am, with our guide meeting participants at our Members Gate. In small groups to allow for social distancing and family ‘bubbles’, our guide will lead the way to the penguin enclosure where you’ll learn amazing facts about the species we care for and have the chance to see them up close before we open our gates to the public.

Leaving the penguins to enjoy their breakfast, you’ll then head over to our Mansion House to have yours and take part in a craft activity. You’ll also make your own cuddly toy to explore the Zoo with for the rest of the day! 

Please note under 3's are welcome to attend, however our activity and toy are suitable for children aged 3 years +.

The Penguin and Pancake breakfast includes:

  • Penguin shaped pancakes with topping pots of banana, strawberry and chocolate sauce
  • A carton of apple or orange juice
