The Signet Library

Conference Venue with Meeting & Training Rooms

Timelessly elegant and historic surroundings set in the heart of Edinburgh make any event here a truly memorable experience. Whether you are looking for a corporate event venue, a meeting room or a party venue, all function rooms share a sophisticated and stylish edge that is unique to the Signet Library.

The Upper Library is a magnificent setting for any event from formal dinners, product launches and drinks receptions to film locations. The Lower Library is available for evening and weekend use, accommodating up to 220 guests for a drinks reception alongside the Upper Library or for intimate aperitifs at the round table prior to dinner in the Commissioners’ Room. The Commissioners’ Room is impressively lined with oak bookcases and is the ultimate private dining experience for up to 40 guests. Alternatively it also creates a formal environment for business and board meetings.

The Lower West Library can seat from 4-20 delegates in a variety of layouts and ideal for small meetings or team training requirements. Wireless access is available as well as audio visual equipment and laptops from our Business Centre facility. We offer all the modern conference facilities and break out rooms you’d expect from a contemporary venue, but with a touch of elegance and sophistication that you’d be hard pressed to find in a modern hotel or business suite.

Additional breakout rooms are available on request subject to availability.

You’ll find us just off The Royal Mile in Parliament Square, close to numerous great transport links and a short walk from Waverley Station.
