Dovecot Studios

10 Infirmary Street Edinburgh EH1 1LT

Situated in a beautifully renovated Victorian swimming baths in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Edinburgh, our venue effortlessly combines historic features with contemporary style. Dovecot Tapestry Studio works to private and public commission with internationally renowned artists and designers, whilst Dovecot Gallery curates a vibrant programme of exhibitions and events to complement the collaborative ethos of the Studio. This creative environment with an intriguing history makes Dovecot one of Edinburgh’s most unique venues for hire and provides an exclusive experience for you and your guests. The venue hire fee directly contributes towards the charitable mission of the Dovecot Foundation, which was established to ensure the long term future of tapestry weaving in Scotland.

The venue hire packages we offer are adaptable and you may choose to choreograph your wedding in different ways. We can host wedding receptions and Humanist ceremonies on our Weaving Floor, Tapestry Studio Viewing Balcony and in our Gallery spaces, allowing you to create a bespoke wedding in partnership with our selected suppliers. Various pricing options are available if you wish to use a combination of spaces. With each of the following packages, complimentary use of our Ladies Baths and Meeting Room is included for the bridal party, caterers and audio visual suppliers. The building is fully accessible with a lift for disabled access to all floors. Please note we do not have a Wedding Licence here at Dovecot, so we can only accommodate Humanist ceremonies.
