Creepy Crawlies

About Creepy Crawlies

This October half term get up close and personal to insects as they invade RZSS Edinburgh Zoo. You will be able to see all the creeping, scuttling, slithering and wriggling creatures that live at the Zoo, including crickets, beetles, stick insects, spiders, cockroaches, giant snails, giant millipedes, spiders and much more.

Visit the Budongo Trail Lecture Theatre where you can see the creepy crawlies on display along with other craft activities, meet the keeper, and handling sessions throughout the day.

Children love this weird and wonderful event as they have the opportunity to get hands on with bugs and insects you would never normally see in Scotland.

The Exhibition will run daily from 11am-3.30pm throughout the October school holidays and is free with Zoo admission.

Remember, you can save up to 14% when you book in advance online!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Creepy Crawlies are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
