Went to a Marc Almond concert in the Queen's Hall, WOW, it was a small intimate venue, and a great concert. I believe it's an old church? Great place for a superb show, so close to the stage! Fab! Staff were great.

The Queens hall is an excellent venue and one of my favourites in Edinburgh. There is a diverse range of shows here from music (all types), comedy and talks. The hall has a very good web site to show what is coming up. The hall is a good size and is not too large for a great atmosphere

Would only go again if I had seats for the ground level. The balcony is an elongated U-shape. Your view of the stage is severely restricted unless you are sitting in the middle section, and is especially bad for the higher rows. What's the point of going to a concert if you can only see half of the stage?

We have been to several concerts in the Queen's Hall. It is a converted church and the seats at the side and rear stalls and on the first floor level are pews and, at times are rather uncomfortable. However, the atmosphere in the hall is fantastic. It is a very intimate venue. The view from some seats is obstructed by... More

I am always impressed by this music venue. This time Texas played to a full and excited audience. The atmosphere was superb especially when the stewards gave up and just let everyone stand and dance. Our only concern was the length of time it took to queue for a drink before and at the interval. 15/20 minutes was a bit... More

There's something quite old fashioned about the Queen's Hall. It is cosy and intimate. It does not provide always the best of views (depends on your seat) and seats are not the most comfortable. Still the atmosphere can make it quite special !

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

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.
