This festive season at Edinburgh Zoo, we're giving you the opportunity for your little ones to meet Santa and Mrs Claus and receive an early festive surprise exclusively at our Christmas 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.

Please note the grotto does not include entry into Edinburgh Zoo. Admission tickets must be purchased alongside your Santa’s Grotto tickets. Admission tickets can be purchased on the door, or in advance through our website here.
