The Royal Botanic Garden is delighted to be reopening to visitors from Wednesday 1st July 2020.

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 8 tickets.
  • 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 here https://www.rbge.org.uk/visitingandstayingsafe

Please note that we have closed many of our buildings and enclosed spaces, such as The Glasshouses, Herbarium & Library. The Garden's restaurant and cafes will be closed.

Toilets, including temporary mobile facilities will be available at the West and East Gate entrances. Toilets for visitors with disabilities will be available in the John Hope Gateway visitor centre and at the FernHouse toilets in the centre of the garden.

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.

Under 14's must be accompanied by an adult.

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.

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.
