The Palm House at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh

The Palm House in RBGE is an iconic landmark in the city of Edinburgh. At a height of 21.95 metres (72ft) this, the tallest glasshouse of its kind in the United Kingdom and one of the tallest in the world. It was designed by Robert Matheson with a Parliamentary grant of £6,000. When it first opened to the public in 1858 the building provided visitors with their first, perhaps only, experience of palms and other wonderful exotics from far away places.
