If the weather is good, a packed lunch to eat on the lawn is well worth bringing.
Go for opening time at 10 a.m. to avoid crowds and break for lunch halfway through your visit.
Opens at 10 a.m. year-round. Closing times vary slightly depending on the season.
Access to the gardens is free, but the £6.50 entry fee (for those over 15) to the Glasshouses is worth every penny.
Experience beautiful nature in the heart of the city at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE). Your kids will enjoy having the freedom to roam and run whilst you admire the hard work and love that has clearly gone into maintaining these magnificent gardens. Enjoy lunch at the Terrace Cafe, a family-friendly restaurant within the gardens. If the weather permits, you can pack a picnic to add to this fun day outdoors.
