Edinburgh’s Royal Botanic Garden was established in 1670—that’s an impressively long time ago, when Charles II was King of England, Scotland, and Ireland, just after the short period during which England had no monarchy.

King Charles II was known for his love of art and sciences so it’s no wonder that a Royal Botanic Garden was established under his reign. What is so great is that we can still wander through this garden today.
