Fodor's Expert Review Edinburgh Zoo
Home to star attractions Tian Tian and Yang Gaung, the United Kingdom's only two giant pandas, Edinburgh's Zoo hosts more than 1,000 animals over 80 acres. Don't miss the famous Penguin Parade, which takes place every afternoon (as long as the penguins are willing), or the ever-popular Koala Territory, where you can get up close to the zoo's four koalas—including Yoonarah, born in 2014, the first-ever British-born koala. Discounted tickets are available online. Free 15-minute panda-viewing sessions must be booked in advance.
