On selective dates from 9 December – 24 December, bring the family and enjoy breakfast with Santa and Mrs Claus! Dining in our restaurant, you’ll tuck into festive snowman pancakes, participate in craft activities and listen to a story from Mrs Claus.  

As an early Christmas treat, children will get involved with making arts and crafts, take home a gift and have the rest of the day to explore the zoo.  

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.  

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