Learn more about the Signet Library

If you thought you knew Edinburgh, you’d be surprised to discover the wonder that lies behind the doors of the Signet Library.

Undoubtedly one of the city’s hidden gems, this unique and exclusive venue’s strength is in its versatility in altering its ambience and tone for a sedate breakfast conference, romantic weddings, a sumptuous luncheon or a celebrated evening dinner occasion.   With its variety of room sizes, capacities vary from as little as breakfast for 10 to an evening reception for 400.  As the Signet Library’s exclusive caterers, Heritage Portfolio ensure that food and service are equally matched in terms of perfectly pitched discreet service delivering menus which delight every audience.

The Signet Library is an iconic building for Scottish solicitors in its location adjacent to Scotland’s Supreme Courts complex.  A superb facility for working and an outstanding event venue, the Signet Library is also home to the WS Society, Scotland’s independent association for lawyers and one of the oldest professional bodies in the world with over 500 years of history. 

The WS Society is the prestigious Society of Writers to her Majesty’s Signet, essentially an association of Scottish lawyers and one of the oldest professional bodies in the world with its origin lying in the 15th century. Today the Society supports the latest generation of lawyers and legal businesses, with professional support lawyer (PSL) and research services, training, accreditation, networking and events.
