Timelessly Elegant Events Venues

The Signet Library is an exceptional venue for meetings and a wide range of events from sophisticated awards dinners and formal drinks receptions to board meetings and product or press launches. 

Despite its unrivalled historic past, The Signet Library is a surprisingly flexible building with an utterly unique atmosphere. This steeped-in-heritage Edinburgh events venue is located in the heart of the Old Town, just off the Royal Mile in Parliament Square.

A stunning example of Georgian architecture, The Signet Library is an awe-inspiring location for any event, from a fashion show to a black-tie dinner or simply a meeting room. We offer the space and attention to detail to rival any contemporary venue, but with a degree of elegance and sophistication that you simply won't find elsewhere.

Impress guests in the Upper Library: an inspirational setting with soaring ceilings and classical architectural features making this, according to George IV, “the finest drawing room in Europe”. The Lower Library, complete with intricate columns and grand centre aisle, is perfect for a drinks reception before an event in the Upper Library. 

The award-winning team of experts at Heritage Portfolio deliver outstanding hospitality, and are on hand to transform the space into anything you can imagine. Whether your event is grand or relaxed, perfectly chosen food and drink will be delivered with impeccable service.

The Signet Library is a unique event and party venue. We look forward to working with you to make your next occasion perfect. Contact us today to discuss your requirements.
