You can walk around the gardens for free and see a lot! Or you can pay a decent price to see all the beautiful exotic plants within the greenhouses. Definitely worth the money. Would only pay to go in once though. But have visited the...More
A lovely walk on a cold day with some interesting winter plants and trees. A visit to the restaurant was in order due to the chilly day where we had a tasty mushroom and coriander soup with crusty bread and butter then out for another...More
We were fortunate to be invited to the Garden's Christmas Light Show. Ther were light displays, musical shows, food stops, photo spots, and even Santa Clause was there. It is worth the price of a ticket to enjoy fun family time.
walked from farmers market in Stockbridge and had a wonderful time looking at all the flora! The queen Mothers Garden was lovely and the giant hedge and glasshouses are wonderful. give yourself several hours. Lunch was great too!
one of my favourite placesin Edinburgh. Get great views looking South to Arthur's Seat and the Pentlands. The Beech Hedge is absolutley magnificent. Had a great lunch there as well (service a bit slow)
The light show is very nice with plenty of different styles. There are a few shows timed with music as well. One disappointing thing was the food. The german currywurst was just a hotdog with chip shop curry sause and cost £5.50 but worst of...More
If you are thinking of going to the Royal Botanic Garden then I would definitely recommend the evening sessions especially the Christmas specials.
Suitable for anyone and a great evening for family visits and couples.
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s most desirable, though many bohemian touches have fallen away as its residents have matured and the area has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but mostly residents display refined tastes in basement
bistros, gastropubs, coffee and antique shops, boutiques and delis and at the Sunday farmers' market. A pleasant ten-minute walk away, along a leafy riverside path beside the gurgling Water of Leith, lies Dean Village. This sleepy neighborhood of medieval half-timbered houses still retains much of the village feel it had when watermills plied their trade here. Beyond, the wooded riverside path feels even more remote as it climbs to the sculpture gardens of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
