Situated in the very heart of Edinburgh, the Scottish National Gallery is one of the most prestigious venues in the city. There are two grand classical buildings; the Scottish National Gallery, which houses Scotland’s greatest collection of art, and the Royal Scottish Academy, which mounts international blockbuster exhibitions.

This splendid gallery venue is available for dinners, receptions and exclusive private views. Guests can enjoy champagne, cocktails and canapés in wonderful surroundings, plus an exclusive private view of the Gallery’s treasured art collection in the company of an expert curator.

Alternatively dine amidst some the world’s most outstanding works of art, from Rembrandt and Raphael to Vermeer and Velazquez. Dinners can be seated on round tables for up to 250 or for the real wow factor on one long table seating up to 160. For smaller more intimate dining, the beautiful Impressionist Rooms are also available.

The stylish Hawthornden Lecture Theatre located in the heart of the Scottish National Gallery site has comfortable tiered seating, full AV support onsite and is only a 5 minute walk from Waverley station. It can be used for a variety of events, such as film screenings, seminars or award ceremonies. Delegate registration and pre- or post-refreshments can take place in the bright and spacious concours. This unique conference venue is a smart professional space in a culturally inspiring setting.
