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.

Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, Edinburgh Reviews

  • This is few of best botanical gardens I have seen so far. The best part of this place is the glass house which has innumerable species of flowers and trees. I bet you must not have seen most of them and they look very pretty. There are varieties of flower gardens and a quite old tree wall built more than a century back which looks amazing. It’s a place you want to go in summers and spring to lay yourself to a visual feast of natural beauty and you will witness amazing diversity in the trees, plants and flowers. Highly recommended for garden lovers and biology students.

  • With no doubt THE most beautiful botanical garden I've visited so far. The entrance fee for the glasshouse is totally worth it even if you don't know much about plants. Nice cafes and shops for resting. Various indications about the plants, etc.. all through the garden. I'm looking forward to visit the garden again the next time that I'll visit Edinburgh.

  • The most fantastic botanical gardens I've ever been to. I can't describe how amazing this place is, you just need to go. Having traveled around a lot there are very few places that surprise me but this is one of them. I didn't think we would spend much time here but we ended up here for about 4 hours and we still need more time.

  • 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!

  • Stunning gardens. One of the nicest botanic gardens I have visited. So much to see. I spent about 3 hours including the glasshouses which were full of fascinating and unusual plants. It is possible to enter via different gates. If you are using public transport, there's a bus stop near the East gate. There's a cafe at the east gate too.
