Just one mile from city centre, the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh offers visitors peace and tranquillity amongst 72 acres of stunning scenery.
Founded in 1670, the Garden is acknowledged to be one of the finest in the world where unusual and beautiful plants can be found.
The garden is alive with opportunities for discovery, from an eco-tour of the world in the magnificent Glasshouses, featuring Britain's tallest Palm House, to the award-winning art gallery at Inverleith House. Enjoy the serenity of Chinese Hillside, explore the world-famous Rock Garden or stroll amongst the magnificent giant Redwood trees in the Woodland Garden.
Open all year, the garden hosts a popular programme of events, exhibitions and guided tours.
The Botanics Shop has a great selection of gifts, souvenirs, crafts and plants available, while the Terrace Cafe serves daily a delicious selection of high quality hot and cold food for all tastes.
Admission to the garden is FREE.
