Events

This summer, we are pleased to announce our rawr-some range of family-friendly After Hours evenings at Edinburgh Zoo!

Join us for a range of dino-mite evenings filled with acoustic music, face painting, kids entertainment, outdoor games and more, for all ages to enjoy. With a selection of themed food and drink vendors throughout, adventurers can stop to re-charge before heading on to explore our animal exhibits and braving dinosaur territory at dusk!

Don’t forget to capture a lasting memory at our prehistoric photo opportunity and take home your own personalised souvenir from our kiosks in the gift shop.

This evening is for all ages to enjoy, however, we also have a range of adults and member only evenings to choose from. So if you prefer a tipple over tots, check out After Hours for grown-ups.

Read our FAQs for more information on what will be open and closed during our After Hours events.
