This festive season at Edinburgh Zoo, we invite you to join us for a fun-filled breakfast with Santa and Mrs Claus!

On selective dates from 21 November – 24 December, families can enjoy breakfast with Mr and Mrs Claus from our Grasslands Café with festive snowman pancakes, craft activities and a story from Mrs Claus!

As an early Christmas treat, children will also make their own cuddly toy to explore the zoo with for the rest of the day!

In line with government guidance, Santa and Mrs Claus will be socially distanced, two metres from you and your children to help keep everyone safe.

Please note this experience begins at 9am and access will be via our Members Gate at the top of the zoo car park. Your ticket to Breakfast with the Clauses includes your Edinburgh Zoo admission for the rest of the day.

Under 3s are welcome to attend, however our craft activity and toy are for children aged 3 years +. If you feel your child would enjoy this aspect of the event, please ensure you select our under 3 upgrade option.

Breakfast includes:

• Snowman shaped pancakes with topping pots of banana, blueberries and chocolate sauce

• Carton of apple or orange juice

For the grown-ups:

• Option of snowman pancakes or hot filled breakfast roll

• Tea or coffee

Under 3s:

• Yogurt and fruit pot

We are happy to cater to specific dietary requirements and will make contact ahead of the experience to confirm breakfast choices.
