Event Venues in Edinburgh

Venue Finder In Edinburgh


Finding the right venue for your event by yourself can take a lot of time out of your day, be confusing and stressful, and cost you more money than it needs to. Our completely unique free venue finder service is designed to take the weight off your shoulders and handle all of this for you. We’ll use your criteria for the venue with our own expertise to find a shortlist of excellent venues suitable for your event. Whether you’re planning a conference, training day, or other corporate event, we’ll find a venue in Edinburgh that’s perfect for you. 


All of the conference spaces Absolute Venues works with in the Edinburgh area are privately owned and professionally operated. Our venue finder service also happens to be completely free. Because we only work with partners we trust and have a relationship with, our referral fee is paid by the venue. We don’t charge you a single penny. 


This is only possible because of our reputation and experience in the industry as one of the UK’s leading venue finder services. Venues often actually offer discounts on bookings made through us, so searching for a venue with Absolute Venues could actually be cheaper than trying to go it alone!

Why Choose Edinburgh For Your Conference Or Corporate Event?


Edinburgh is consistently voted as one of the UK’s most attractive cities in which to live and work. Scotland’s capital is also often seen in lists counting the best UK cities in which to start a new business. When you choose to hold your conferences, away days, training days and other corporate events requiring business travel in Edinburgh, the city is unlikely to disappoint you. 


Edinburgh has a thriving local economy thanks to its higher education, financial sector and scientific research. Its international reputation as a high-spirited festival city guarantees a warm and lively atmosphere when your delegates arrive and spend time exploring during the evening. Investment in business tourism has increased due to the increasing business of the city’s festivals and its place as the home of Scottish devolution and parliament. Edinburgh is only second to London as the UK’s best city for international conferences. 


Edinburgh is a perfect blend between old and new – the heritage and rich culture mixes with modern facilities to provide unique and interesting venues suitable for events of any size. Edinburgh is also used to receiving guests, and there are over 14,000 hotel rooms available in the city. That means that you don’t have to worry about your delegates not finding accommodation on their business travel! 


Edinburgh is a very compact city – with so much going on you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to get around. Most things are within walking distance of one another, meaning your delegates can easily get around the attractions, dining and shopping areas of the city without venturing too far from your conference venue or their accommodation. Edinburgh nightlife is also famous for its award-winning restaurants and lively bar and music scene!


When searching for a unique venue in Edinburgh, you’ll be completely spoilt for choice. With spaces available for hire settings as varied as historic castles, whisky vaults and underground caves, to more modern, purpose-built facilities. 


Getting To Edinburgh


Wherever in Edinburgh you decide to host your event, it will be in easy reach of the rest of the world. Edinburgh city centre is only 8 miles from Edinburgh Airport with its 130 air routes to Europe, North America, the Middle East and beyond. Edinburgh is Scotland’s most connected city. 


Edinburgh Airport has committed itself to welcoming travellers into the city and making their stay as comfortable as possible. The airport has exceptional standards for helping those who might need a little more help, having introduced a Travelling with Additional Needs toolkit. This makes the journey through the airport and Edinburgh as easy as possible by providing clear steps to follow and letting passengers know what to expect while travelling. 


When your delegates want to get in and around the city, Lothian Buses provide an award-winning public transportation service. Operating throughout the city, Lothian Buses are famed for their timeliness and comfortable fleet of modern buses. 


Edinburgh also boasts a state of the art tram service. Launched in 2014, Edinburgh’s trams are the fastest way to get from the airport to the city centre. They’re the best way for your international delegates to discover the city, stopping at all the key transport links, shopping areas, business districts and venues on the way into the city. The trams also happen to create zero on-street carbon emissions, providing a smooth but fast service while staying environmentally friendly. 


Edinburgh has great rail connections too. With two large train stations in the city centre, found at the east and west ends of Princes Street, Edinburgh has exceptional rail links throughout the UK. A train to Glasgow only takes 55 minutes, and even the incredibly long journey from London can be done in about 4 and a half hours. Both stations are also within easy walking distance of Edinburgh’s many hotels and venues for conferences.

I haven’t thanked you for all the help you provided, which is very remiss of me. You were great – thank you! The hotel that we booked through you was really good – we had some teething problems at our first weekend, but they were very responsive in dealing with these for the second. We would gladly work with them again.
