Edinburgh Zoo has announced it will reopen this weekend for local residents after being closed due to coronavirus restrictions. 

In a Facebook post, the attraction said that Scottish Government guidance means they are allowed to reopen as a “safe, outdoors environment for City of Edinburgh residents”.

The zoo will reopen on Friday, Saturday and Sunday to members and prepaid ticket holders, with tickets for March set to go on general sale next week.

The post added: “Safety comes first and there will be a wide range of measures in place to protect our visitors, staff and animals. This includes everyone needing to book tickets in advance.  

“We are asking everyone to follow government guidance which means you must not travel from outside the local authority area or gather in groups of more than two households with more than two adults.

“Thank you to everyone who has supported us by donating, adopting, joining as a member and much, much more – you are helping to care for our animals and protect endangered species in Scotland and around the world.”
