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.

Following a major redevelopment completed in 2012, this important Georgian venue has been transformed into spaces fit for contemporary use, but with their architectural significance preserved and enhanced. Restored to their former glory, our Ballroom, Music Hall, Drawing Rooms and Crush Hall are providing elegant backdrops for formal and informal occasions, day and night.

The spectacular rooms provide versatile spaces for all occasions catering for events from 10 to 1000. The Music Hall and Ballroom are the largest and most stunning spaces with a further nine rooms catering from 10 boardroom style up to receptions for 120.

Assembly Rooms Edinburgh is THE place for inspirational and charismatic events of all types, always guaranteeing the most memorable occasions in this simply breathtaking venue
