Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh - Review

This scientific centre and popular tourist attraction wasfounded in 1670. About 4% of all known plant species are preserved here. There are no limit to the things you can see: rare plants, waterfalls, rock gardens, glass houses, Asian-themed gardens and stunning borders and plant collections. The staff is wonderfully helpful and knowledgable so don’t be afraid to ask quentions. There is a gift shop nearby if you want souvenirs. The restaurant isn’t bad for a bite. The Garden frequently host Art Exhibitions. It’s one of Edimburgh’s most beautiful spots.

  • If you love plants, this should be a must-visit paradise on your Edinburgh itinerary. It truly lives up to it's fame as one of the best Botanic Gardens. The exhibits are well organized and spread over a very large estate, which would require an entire day to completely walk around and enjoy. I especially loved the Rock Garden.There is coffee shop in the middle of the garden to keep you energized. Highly recommended!

  • We visited the botanical gardens in London, Dublin and Edinburgh, in order of decreasing size. We loved all three. Edinburgh was notable for rare species and beautiful landscaping. Really nice. The big lily pads in the greenhouse were beyond cool. Highly recommend these gardens.

  • The Botanical Gardens are beautiful on a warm, sunny day. It's a great place to visit and just relax. There are a couple of coffee shops to have a snack and a drink at. Of course, there are the thousands of different species of plants, flowers and trees to see as well, along with lots of different wildlife that flocks here. The real bonus is that it is free entry! I would recommend you visit this landmark if you are visiting Edinburgh!

  • A wonderful collection of gardens; well worth a stop while visiting Edinburgh. We strolled to the glass building to see the blooms and walk along the miniature gardens. There is a charge to enter the glass garden building. It was a beautiful day for our visit so we choose to skip going inside. It's a large area so pack a drink and snack - we saw many families enjoying picnics on the grass areas. The gift shop is very nice and worth a visit. Well worth a visit on a sunny day.

  • The Royal Botanic Gardens is a great place for all the family and best of all the outdoor parts of it are free! Various themed areas make up the garden with plants, flowers, shrubs, trees and many more things from nature from all around the world. We took our Niece and she loved learning about all of the different things from the information plaques. It's great for repeat visits as you can vary your route through and take in different parts.
