Temporary access changes
Please look out for Edinburgh Biomes signs during your visit. They will advise you of temporary access changes while the work on the Edinburgh Biomes project is progressing.
Queen Mother's Memorial Garden and Alpine Area
The Queen Mother’s Memorial Garden and Alpine Area are currently only open to visitors from 2.30pm on Friday and at weekends, Saturday and Sunday, during the Edinburgh Biomes project. Please note that the Queen Mother's Memorial Garden and Alpine area will also be closed this month from 7 – 9 July, on 14 – 16 July and from 21 – 23 July.
During this period of reduced access we are also redeveloping the Queen Mother's Memorial Garden to create a more robust garden against the impacts of climate change, whilst maintaining inspiration from the Castle of Mey - the Queen Mother's Home in Caithness. The full redesign will be complete by Autumn 2023.
Our Glasshouses are currently closed as part of Edinburgh Biomes, the Garden’s major restoration and construction project. Work is now underway to protect our globally important Living Collection of plants for future generations. We apologise for any inconvenience.
