Penguin Parade 

No visit to Edinburgh Zoo is complete without seeing our famous penguin parade!

Find out more about our King, Gentoo and Rockhopper colonies whilst any penguins who fancy a stroll, leave their enclosure and walk around the parade route with their keepers.

The parade is very popular so we would advise arriving in plenty of time to get a good vantage point around the parade route.

Please Note:

The penguin parade is run on an entirely voluntary basis. It is the penguins' choice to take part, we do not encourage them with food. Unfortunately, this does mean that occasionally the parade is cancelled if they do not wish to go out.
