The Old Town Collection Edinburgh brings together three of the City’s most iconic buildings – the Festival Theatre, the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and the National Museum of Scotland.
Within a short walk around Edinburgh’s beautiful old town, the venues offer a distinctive location for your association’s next conference.
The Festival Theatre is the ideal location for your main conference sessions - a historic setting with twenty-first century technology throughout. Spacious foyers in this remarkable refurbished theatre lead into the beautiful 1928 auditorium with ample comfortable seating for all your delegates.
The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh provides breakout, exhibition and catering space, boasting both historic and modern buildings. Plus of course, on site accommodation is available in the four-star Ten Hill Place Hotel.
The National Museum of Scotland is a stunning destination for the key social event of your conference. The Museum has atmospheric vaulted chambers – perfect for a welcome reception, and the Grand Gallery sets the scene for a never-to-be-forgotten fine dining experience.
The capacity chart below only shows a small number of the rooms available over the three venues.
The three organisations within the Collection are registered charities and profits from their conference businesses are used to support the education and cultural sectors in the city, and around the world.
For conferences up to around 750 delegates, The Old Town Collection should be your first choice in Scotland’s capital city.
