The Place: Edinburgh’s most exclusive + special hidden gem

Be one of the first couples to say We Do in The Place, an unexpected city centre wedding venue!

Since 2012, and after a long and intriguing history, The Place in Edinburgh became a hotel; the labs and lecture theatres of the bygone Pharmaceutical Society of Scotland were renovated to create one of the most unique wedding venues in Edinburgh.


Not only is The Place home to our capital city’s only literature hotel “ Edinburgh was the world’s first UNESCO city of literature “ with 47 bedrooms including four themed hotel suites inspired by great Edinburgh writers like J.K. Rowling and Robert Louis Stevenson, but it also has a fantastic selection of public spaces, with a capacity of up to 200, that you can fully utilise for your special day.


One stand-out space is the terrace complete with cascading waterfalls, stylish heating and a retractable roof, as well as soft furnishing and tartan rugs; it doesn’t matter what the weather, you can bring an outdoor feel to the proceedings, a chance that you rarely get within a city centre location.

You could even have a wedding breakfast BBQ out there!


The Broughton Suite marries elaborate original cornicing and decadent wood panelling with contemporary mood lighting which can be coloured to match your theme, while the Raeburn Suite has a cool city vibe and is finished to high, modern standard with a large permanent bar and access to state of the art sound and lighting technology.


Fabulous food and drink are also on the menu. Add a flourish to your drinks reception with a personalised signature cocktail, taste and choose some fine wines for your guests and enjoy a selection of great menu packages to suit every taste and budget.

Don’t see something you’d like on the menu? No problem. Work with the chef and catering team at The Place to come up with your perfect feast.



Why not make an appointment to visit The Place now? You could pop in to their Wedding Fayre on Sunday 26th February from noon until 4pm to view the events spaces and rooms, and meet a range of chosen local suppliers who could go on to form your wedding dream team.
