Corstorphine Hill

A walk up Corstorphine Hill is the perfect thing to blow the cobwebs away on a weekend morning, and see some incredible views of the city and the Pentland Hills. There’s a walled garden and Corstorphine Tower for you to find as you explore the wooded trails and open spaces. It’s also a great spot for sledging in the snow!

Edinburgh Zoo

The Zoo is perhaps Corstorphine’s most famous attraction, with everything from penguins to pandas, lions to lemurs, tortoises to tarantulas. There are lots of animal experiences, educational talks and tours, and plenty of outdoor space for kids to roam and explore. Some activities and indoor exhibits are closed due to Covid-19 – you can find up to date information on the Zoo website.

Light up your Nights is this year's Christmas market at Edinburgh Zoo.

Murrayfield Stadium

Just outside Corstorphine you’ll find the BT Murrayfield Stadium, home of Edinburgh Rugby, and the scene of all of Scotland’s home games at the 6 Nations. On match days the stadium is a hive of activity with fans enjoying food, drinks and activities in the stadium grounds.

The rest of the time you can visit the stadium for a guided tour and a look around the Scottish Rugby Store.
