  • very nice garden! peaceful and relaxing, it contains a lot of plants from all over the world! there is also a glasshouse in the middle which seemed very nice but we did not have the time to visit! however, finally... remember to take some nuts with you! squirrels may be very friendly :)

  • Went to the light show followed by dinner. Very good evening. Had a free electric buggy for my friend. All staff very attentive and pleasant. Meal was good and there is a lovely shop to look around too. Disabled parking at the entrance.

  • This place is fantastic. 5 stars are just not enough! There are so many facets to this botanic gardens. Of all the botanic gardens I have visited around the world this is the best. The material presented is diverse, interesting, beautiful and wonderfully accessible. The grounds and surrounds are well maintained. There is a feeling engendered by the place that is difficult to describe: exciting, yet relaxing, full of the wonder of nature yet valuing the skills and artistry of the designers, developers and maintainers. The site has both indoor and outdoor experiences. It is always fresh, offering plenty to see and experience. I think this is a major asset for Edinburgh and a must experience place for visitors.

  • Incredible variety in the garden, from small bushes to giant sequoias. The greenhouses aren’t free to visit which is a major downside. The area is expansive but occasionally that just means that everything is spread out too thin. In my opinion the botanic gardens in Glasgow are way better. More concise and with free access to the greenhouses they offer more for less.

  • Huge botanical garden spread over acres and contains some of the most exotic plants from around the world from Brazil rain forests to far east to deep jungles of indian subcontinent. One day is not enough if your serious visitor took me couple of hours to run through all the sections. Giant water Lilly's are unique and tropical plants section is one of the best maintained. Reach early morning and catch up with breakfast on the first floor restaurant and then whole day can be spent in the garden. Top attractions in Edinburgh for nature lovers. You can also shop in the store at entrance they sell some really nice cuff links on botanical themes.
