Evenings at Edinburgh Zoo are brought to life with the Giant Lanterns of China throughout November, December, January.
When darkness falls, over 450 lanterns light the way through zoo, casting a magical setting with Chinese legends and Scottish myths, created by 50 craftsmen from Sichuan.
The giant steel and silk lanterns, which took a staggering 25,000 hours to produce, include giants, kelpies, unicorns, Scotland’s own Loch Ness Monster alongside flamingoes, lions, giant pandas, intricate flowers and 9-foot high and a 115 foot long Chinese dragon.
As well as the Giant Lanterns of China there will be hot drinks and snacks to help keep the chill away and a marketplace with handmade crafts from Chinese artisans.
