The perfect place to enjoy a music performance, makes a lovely change from some of the huge venues! We would rather have been given allocated seats but managed to get a good view anyway and loved the concert, James Bay. Drinks were predictably higher in price than local bars but much more reasonable than other music venues!

This venue is visited by us regularly and really has such an amazing variety of acts. A very friendly atmosphere and the Booking Staff are always so helpful. Last visit was to see Lau and their Lauland spectacular which featured an amazing array of guests. Do check their events

What a fantastic venue for an intimate concert ' like they used to be ' prior to the stadium or larger halls used for music concerts most of the time now. A packed concert hall last night to see Paul Carrack with a fantastic night of music and atmosphere. Acoustics were good, seats and facilities comfortable and so nice to... More

Went to see the amazing Paul Carrack here, nice intimate venue and great acoustics. Downside, as the venue is an old church, most of the seating is extremely narrow pews therefore not very comfortable. Our 'pew' was right by the entrance hall and doorway to the street which was wide open for the 30 minutes prior to the concert. We... More

Small concert venue, but still attractive. The intimate space lets you feel close to the performer. Mostly visited as part of a concert tour by Eric Bibb and always found the venue very good. The seats are rather hard, but not uncomfortable. Parts of the hall give limited view of the stage, so choose your seat carefully.

Concerts at 11 every morning. Difficult to decide what was the best this year, but possibly the programme by Anne-Sofie von Otter.

Cramped uncomfortable seating. The concert made up for it as Justin Currie was as excellent as usual

Saw Echo and The Bunnymen back in June of this year (2014). First time at this venue, so was feeling a bit nervous (apart from the butterflies in my stomach at seeing EATB again after some 30 odd years). I need not have worried, this was an ideal venue. You could sit or stand as you wished (I always stand... More

We saw Iain Hunter in the Queen's Hall on Saturday, as part of the Jazz Festival. What a terrific show in a good venue. Just a couple of things that are perhaps to be expected in this type of venue - the seats got quite uncomfortable by the end of the night, and it was very hot with no air... More

Staying in Southside & Holyrood

Neighborhood Profile
Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around university buildings in Southside, the sort of neighborhood that supports a long string of second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for just a few pounds. In August the student population is replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking Southside are two great parks. The Meadows is a vast flat and sporty space where football, rugby, tennis, cricket, croquet, and golf often all take place side by side. Kids in its big playgrounds add to the joyful noise. Far bigger and much wilder, Holyrood Park extends to the east and provides a real hike up Arthur’s Seat, but the district is best known as the site of Scotland’s Parliament and its premier Royal Palace—and their steady stream of sightseers.
