Everyone has to go to the gardens at least once. great at Christmas for the german market, great in the summer for picnics etc. Any tiem of year is great for walks or to sit and have lunch. Take in the views of the castle.

When we went there were parties and activities going on. The stage was full of young people enjoying themselves. Lovely grassed areas with flowers and displays.

Felt like you were in the country and not in the heart of a busy city!

Great food and drink stalls with toilets nearby. Nice place to laze in the sun and etch all that's going on around you.

Our hotel was right across from the Gardens so we walked thru the area daily on our way to the trains. Very beautiful area right in the heart of Edinburgh, I would recommend grabbing a coffee or tea and do a littl exploring. You are very close to good shopping and some wonderful pubs as well as good access to the Royal Mile, so no excuse not to check it out!

I came here on a few sunny late February afternoons, and although not all the plants were in bloom, it was totally beautiful all the same. Right in the city centre, these smalls gardens are perfect for taking a break, sitting down on the grass to soak up the sun, have a chat with friends, read a book or just people watch.The gardens were bustling but not too busy, there was a really chilled, laid back vibe and the views are gorgeous. A great place to relax.
