They are maybe the biggest attraction within the Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh, Scotland: the glasshouses surrounding the Temperate Palm House built in 1858. You can see numerous plants in different glasshouses with diverse levels of temperature and humidity – including a giant water lily. But already the main glasshouse in Victorian style is worth a visit.
While in the scientific beginnings of the collection this place was full of pot plants it now has a very natural look and is clearly targeted towards non-scientific visitors. Therefore you have to pay a small fee to get in. It is a nice place for a walk and to discover the plants of different climate zones – even though it might be a bit too hot in summer days.
