Botanic Lights

Night in the Garden

October 30 - November 23

As darkness descends, follow a magical trail of light through the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.   Take a path illuminated by fantastic effects and experience the unfamiliar sights and sounds of the Garden after dark. 

See the Victorian Palm House lit superbly against the evening sky, enjoy the sparkle of lights over the pond, play with installations which cast amazing colour and shadow on the landscape before making your way to a spectacular finale of light on Inverleith House lawn, overlooking the Edinburgh skyline at night.

A new and unique event for all the family.

Refreshments available.

To book by phone call 0844 573 8455 (open 10am-6pm Mon-Sat, closed Sunday). Tickets can also be purchased from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe Shop, 180 High Street, Edinburgh.

If you have bought tickets for the event you are advised to read the full Terms and Conditions.

Visitors to the Garden after dark may be lucky enough to catch glimpses of the Garden’s wildlife, such as bats, badgers and foxes. Please respect them and their home during your visit and do not attempt to get close.
