£5 entry for all until 9th January 2011

Edinburgh Spotlight loves Edinburgh Zoo and visits many times throughout  the year.  We have previously reviewed the zoo in full from a child’s perspective, but it really is suitable for all ages.

We popped along again last week and the entry price is reduced at the moment to £5 per person.  This fantastic offer runs until the 9th of January 2011.  Opening times for the offer are from 10.00am until 4.30pm with the last entry being at 3.30pm.  Parts of the zoo may be closed off due to the snow, but when we were there, you could still see the majority of the animals – it’s just the high parts that may be closed.

The paths were all cleared and gritted and every member of staff we encountered was extremely professional and polite.  The zoo is doing a marvellous job of keeping this popular attraction open during the worst weather Edinburgh has seen in years.

The zoo is also open on Christmas Day and New Year’s day.

Also proving popular just now is the Edinburgh Zoo Penguin Cam.   You can find the zoo on facebook and on twitter.
