Book Tickets

We're looking forward to welcoming you to Edinburgh Zoo!

Your visit will be different to normal as we take measures to ensure the safety of our visitors, staff and animals. For the latest visitor information, please visit our FAQ page before booking your tickets and remember to check the Scottish Government guidance for the City of Edinburgh Council area.

Please note: we now need to record a telephone number at the time of booking to comply with the Scottish Government's Test and Protect scheme. We will hold these details for 21 days and are required to share them with the NHS upon request.

If you have prepaid tickets (including annual passes, admission vouchers, corporate tickets, Blue Peter badge holders or adopter tickets), please select the appropriate prepaid ticket option and bring your prepaid ticket confirmation on the day of your visit.

If you are a member, you must book tickets at for timeslots before 2pm at weekends and during the school holidays - please check the RZSS member section of our FAQ page for full details of exceptions for members and guests.

Please note that admission tickets must be booked no later than 2 hours before your arrival slot time.  

If you receive an error message after your payment details have been processed, please DO NOT rebook - instead, email the admissions team at and they will confirm your booking.

Your donation is important to us

Every donation counts!

With your donation, and the Gift Aid we may be able to reclaim if you are a UK taxpayer, we can continue our vital conservation work.

The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland is a charity and we rely on the generosity of our visitors, members and patrons to protect wildlife in Scotland and around the world.

Please tick the box above to include a small donation.

Your Gift Aid Declaration
Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid allows you to significantly increase the value of your donation to us without you having to pay a penny more

For every £1 you donate, we can claim an additional 25p from the taxman. 

I would like the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS) to reclaim the tax on this donation from me and my immediate family. I confirm I have paid or will pay an amount of income tax and/or capital gains tax for each tax year (6 April to 5 April) that is at least equal to the amount of tax that all the charities or Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) that I donate to will reclaim on my gifts for that tax year. I understand that other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify. I would also like to Gift Aid all donations I have made to RZSS in the last four years and all donations in the future until I notify you otherwise.
