image spacer This Edinburgh ‘village’ lies on the banks of the Water of Leith and, while noted for its antique and craft shops, is particularly famous as the home of the spectacular Royal Botanical Gardens, founded in 1670.

The gardens at Inverleith Park have one of the most remarkable collections of Chinese plants in Europe, many being gathered by the adventurous George Forrest over a seven-year period in the early part of the 19th century.
