Assembly Rooms

One of Edinburgh City Centre’s largest and most impressive multi-purpose unique event spaces, perfect for any occasion from conferences, dinners and performances to exhibitions, seminars and weddings. Timeless elegance and beauty combine with everything you would expect from the most modern of venues: enormous crystal chandeliers, gleaming gold leaf and giant gilt mirrors reflect the history and tradition of the building, while the very latest technology has been discreetly incorporated following an extensive restoration. For more than two centuries Assembly Rooms has been at the very heart of the capital and touched the lives of almost all of its residents. It has hosted both monarchy and celebrity royalty, played its part in two world wars and celebrated artistic excellence. The spectacular rooms provide versatile spaces for all occasions catering for events from 10 to 1000.

The Caves

The Caves is a truly unique venue that makes up the sub-structure of the 18th Century South Bridge. There is no venue more Edinburgh than the Caves, or more Scottish, if you consider there was once so much Whisky stored here that it became known as “Whisky Row”. Every room has a story to tell and a special place in Scottish history -from vaults that served as the stables to the French Cavalry who were at one time body guards to the Royal Family, to remains of the houses that pre-date the Bridge itself – with the original terracotta floor tiles still intact!

 Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh

Set in the heart of Edinburgh’s city centre, the College offers both historic elegance and state of the art venue facilities. With stunning architecture and medical symbolism weaved throughout, the College’s range of historic and modern rooms can be transformed to suit any event. The venue provides the perfect backdrop for a range of events, from innovative conferences, meetings and seminars, prestigious dinners and award ceremonies to hosting your dream wedding. Featuring one of the largest auditoriums in Edinburgh, the Physicians International Conference Centre is an inspirational setting for first class conferences and meetings.

 National Galleries of Scotland

National Galleries of Scotland, world-class venues offered for hire, all located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Edinburgh. The galleries house Scotland’s vast collection of art including masterpieces from Rembrandt to Van Gogh and Picasso to Warhol. When you hire the venues, you place your event within an outstanding cultural environment, as well as supporting the continuation of the vital National Galleries of Scotland art collection for the world.

Edinburgh Castle

Edinburgh Castle rises up above the city to give Scotland’s capital its fairytale skyline. Few settings can rival the drama of Edinburgh Castle, especially when lit up against the night sky. A piper’s welcome and flaming torches will greet your guests on arrival at the drawbridge, hinting at the magical evening that awaits them inside. Plan a celebration for clients, contacts or colleagues in the heart of one of Europe’s most beautiful capital cities. Edinburgh is easy to reach by air, rail or road, and has many excellent accommodation options.
