19th Feb: A free day out at Edinburgh Zoo!


Feeling a bit like these pandas after the festivities? Fancy some fresh air and fun? Then join us for a day out on 19th Feb from 12-5pm at Edinburgh Zoo! Our Hub Space at The Mansion House inside Edinburgh Zoo will be open from 12pm, come and say hello, drop your bags and have a wander around the zoo before lunch. We will have this fully accessible (and beautiful!) space all day for lunch, activities and as a chill out space.

From 2-3pm we will be paying the pandas a visit, then testing our bravery with some small animal handling sessions, including snakes and spiders (yes, I’ll be the one who embarrasses myself!). During this time, there will be a chance for parents to catch up in the Mansion House Bar.
