The Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh are one of Scotland's favourite attractions welcoming over 660,000 visitors each year. Originally founded in Holyrood, the Garden moved to Leith and finally, settled and expanded in Inverleith in 1820.

The Edinburgh Botanic Gardens are especially beautiful in the Spring or on a hot Summer day when the inhabitants of the city come to the gardens to relax. A great place to visit, if you want to escape from the city's busy streets. We also recommend the gardens as the end destination of a romantic walk along the Water of Leith from Dean Village.

There is a self service coffee shop in the centre of the gardens, with tables outside for enjoying a drink on a lazy sunny afternoon. A recent addition is a new restaurant at the West Gate main entrance. This is a very nice place to go if you want a more refined dining experience with table service.
