About this Event

When visiting our Edinburgh Garden, you must book a time slot online before your visit.

The health and safety of our visitors and staff remains a top priority. With this in mind, we are implementing new measures to help protect you. That is why we have introduced time slot tickets to help us minimise queuing and facilitate physical distancing.

  • Entry to the Edinburgh Garden remains free.
  • Everyone including members, carers, children and babies must book a time slot ticket. Under 14's must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Bookings can be made for up to a maximum of eight tickets. There should be no more than six adults in any group from a maximum of two different households, in line with the current Scottish Government guidance.
  • Your chosen time slot/entry time will be displayed on the top left corner of your ticket(s) which will be attached to your confirmation email. Please have your tickets ready for scanning upon entry.
  • To reduce queuing, please do not arrive before your chosen time slot. You have up to 45 minutes after your selected time slot to gain entry. Once you're inside the garden, you can stay as long as you like.
  • Our arrangements for visitors have temporarily changed: See OUR FAQs at https://www.rbge.org.uk/visitingandstayingsafe

A limited number of wheelchairs will be available to hire. Please book in advance by emailing visitorwelcome@rbge.org.uk by calling 0131 248 2909. Unfortunately, mobility scooters will be unavailable to hire at this time. However, visitors are welcome to bring their own.

We care for some of the world's most precious plant species. To protect our Living Collection and our visitors we have rules around what you can and can't do in the Gardens. https://www.rbge.org.uk/media/3707/garden-regulations-2.pdf

Unfortunately, there will be no storage facilities for children's scooters, balance bikes or cycles. The lockers will also not be in use during this time.

Bicycle stands can be found at the East and West Gate where you can attach scooters and bikes with your own padlock.

Support Us - safeguard our future

As a charity, we need your support more than ever before. Whilst the Garden was closed, we lost a large proportion of vital income which supports our international research and conservation work. By making a donation, your support can help us to protect the world of plants. Thank you

We hope you enjoy your visit.
