Enjoy a really unique wild day out, in one of Scotland’s leading tourist attractions at Edinburgh Zoo. Set in lovely hillside parkland, just west of the city centre, within easy reach of the airport, the Zoo is home to almost 1,000 rare and amazing animals, from our Giant Pandas Tian Tian and Yang Guang to the tiny Partula snails.

Discover the spacious meeting rooms and classic period features of the majestic Mansion House, a striking 18th Century baronial mansion set in the heart of the Zoo, or expand into the 180 seat lecture theatre and break-out rooms of the nearby modern Budongo Lecture theatre, situated in our Chimp Enclosure.

Combine your company business with one or more of our exciting animal-related experiences on offer. These include activities such as animal handling, a teambuilding zoo quiz or a drinks reception and animal talk at one of our animal enclosures. Who would forget a conference that included coming face to face with a tarantula, or a dinner that included a glass of Champagne at the Chimps?

With over 80 acres to explore, Edinburgh Zoo is a place where the sights and sounds bring your senses alive. Set within stunning grounds and surrounded by an array of animals all make for a truly wonderful setting for any event from  corporate family BBQs to Christmas parties. This certainly is one venue which you and your guests will never forget.

The two rooms combine to become one magnificent oak panelled room with views across the park and access to our gardens.
