What people are saying:

This is the second largest botanical garden in Britain outside the London Orange Garden. It is located on the outskirts of Edinburgh, but only half an hour's walk. It is free outside the greenhouse. The garden is typical of British gardening.

Additional Information


Escape the metropolitan bustle of Edinburgh for a few hours to wander the Royal Botanical Garden, an institution of the U.K. since the 17th century. Featuring one of the widest assortments of garden varieties in the world, the Garden allows you to examine cycads (dinosaur-era plants), get a taste of the Far East with its collection of Chinese native plants and a Japanese Zen garden, or bask in the vivid beauty of the azalea lawn. Break for lunch at the cafe, and pick up a book of gardening tips at the gift shop.
