The Royal Botanic Garden offers more than 70 acres of natural tranquillity and beautiful scenery.
Just one mile from the city centre of Edinburgh, set in a beautiful Victorian neighbourhood, the Royal Botanic Garden offers more than 70 acres of natural tranquillity and beautiful scenery. Established in 1670, it is considered one of the finest gardens in the world with its stunning variety of unusual and beautiful plants -- more than 13,000 living species. Founded originally to grow medicinal plants, the garden today functions as an important biodiversity conservation centre.
Here, you can enjoy the splendid glasshouses, the tropical palmhouse -- the largest in Britain, the famous Rock Garden, the serene Chinese Hillside and giant redwood trees in the Woodland Garden, among other notable collections.View Edinburgh & Area
