Non-essential travel to the North Pole may be limited but Edinburgh Zoo has promised “a magical journey” there and back with its Christmas lights display.

The spectacular light trail – decked with candy canes, nutcrackers and fairy lights – takes in landmarks such as a moonlit Penguins Rock and an enchanted ice forest on the way to Santa’s workshop.

Visitors can even stop off for an Arctic safari with animated projections of seals, whales and polar bears on snowy plains and in iceberg laden oceans.

Designed for limited visitor numbers, the display runs from November 20 until January 3.
