If you have any questions or for more information, please contact the venue directly.

The Archive at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh houses thousands of letters that have been sent to and from the Garden over the course of its 349-year history. With letters from explorers, politicians and renowned scientists, the collection provides a fascinating insight into historical conversations as the correspondents discuss the botanical, cultural and social issues of the day.

Join us as we travel around the world and through time with the RBGE Archivist Leonie Paterson, as part of Book Week Scotland, to catch up with some of RBGE's correspondents and find out what their conversations might have to teach us.
