A unique, intriguing and historic venue in the heart of Edinburgh, the Royal College of Physicians dates from 1681 when it was established to promote professional standards of medicine around the world. Today that work continues and the building itself, completed in 1848, also functions as a leading events venue.

A blend of Georgian elegance and grand Victorian style, an opulent staircase takes you to the magnificent Great Hall which can comfortably seat 150 for dinner. There are several flexible spaces for all kinds of events and functions, from large conferences to small meetings, as well as product launches, receptions, dinners and weddings.

The ravishing architectural detailing of the original building makes the Royal College of Physicians a perfect wedding backdrop. In contrast, the modern lines of the separate conference centre and meeting rooms provide all the technical and audiovisual facilities required for a high level business event. With a capacity to host up to 300 delegates this is an unusually spacious venue considering its central location in the city’s historic New Town district.
