Visiting Us

The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh welcomes all visitors and aims to ensure that everyone has an enjoyable day out by providing best possible access to the Gardens, our Glasshouses, Inverleith House contemporary art gallery, our visitor centre and restaurants.   

The Garden is largely accessible to wheelchair users and public buildings have level or ramped ground floor access.  There are tarmac paths around the Garden most of which are flat and accessible.  Any steep paths which are not wheelchair accessible are sign-posted.

All registered assistance dogs are welcome in the Garden.

The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh’s Access Statement is currently in development and will be added to this website in the very near future.  Thank you for your patience.
