Royal Botanic Garden

20A Inverleith Row Edinburgh EH3 5LR 0131 248 2901

We say

The thirty hectares of landscaped garden, mature trees and exotic vegetation that makes up Edinburgh's botanic garden is an obvious escape from the bustle of the city. Located between the New Town and the Forth shore, you can come here to discover landscape art, great views of the Old Town skyline and themed mini-gardens, while there's plenty to learn about plants and botany in the eco-designed Gateway Centre (free) and interlocked glasshouses (admission charge).

Beautiful palm-house ★★★★★

It's worth a visit just to marvel at the absolutely exquisite palm-house. One of my favourite buildings, and it's free too!
