Edinburgh's Old Town Zoo walks are a fundraising initiative in aid of Ferrywell Youth Project, supporting young people to make the best choices in Pilton, Muirhouse and Drylaw. 

Looking for something to do with children during the school holidays or at weekends?   

Edinburgh's Old Town Zoo is a fun guided walk aimed at Middle/Upper Primary children. An easy trail lasting around 60 minutes takes them on a hunt for the many animals that 'live' in the Old Town's monuments and sculptures. Discover a whole menagerie with lots of stories to tell.  


The walk starts on Edinburgh Castle Esplanade and finishes near St Giles Cathedral.  

I am a retired teacher now working as an STGA Blue Badge Tourist Guide. I have a Disclosure Scotland PVG certificate and am also certified under VisitScotland's 'We're Good to Go' scheme for Covid-safe tourism.  

Guideline price £25 per family. Children must be accompanied by a parent or other responsible adult.
