Although not open every day it is well worth finding out when it is open as Phoebe Traquairs murals are a vision of arts and crafts influenced beauty and were so nearly lost. The guides are very informative about the art and the church sect...More
Stunning former apostolic cathedral. Now an events venue. Open during the festival and selected dates all year. Home of the famous Phoebe Anna Traquair murals. Breathtaking artwork and children are given a quiz to keep them occupied. Helpful staff, guided tour or look at your...More
Although its off the beaten track its well worth a visit. Beautiful moving paintings. Paintings have been restored to the highest standard. Absolutely stunning building, breathtaking. Once was a church now its a venue regularly used for wedding receptions and corporate dinners.
Just a bit out of the way for tourists (a few blocks from the Royal Mile, past the Conan Doyle Pub), and open limited hours, but well worth a visit. My artist wife wanted to see the murals, which are truly astonishing. She arranged a...More
Attended wedding at the Mansfield Traquair.
Venue is truly stunning & very atmospheric.
Beautiful former church is an ideal venue.
Staff on the whole excellent, although the evening bar staff seemed a bit inexperienced.

We tasted some yummy cocktails and it was really interesting to hear the backstory to each concoction.
Food was tasty and inexpensive. Atmosphere 10 out...More
This venue is stunning and perfect for an elegant wedding. I had a fabulous time here at a wedding last month. The staff really work together to make sure the event flows well. My only complaint was that the ladies room is two floors down...More
I was at a wedding in this stunning former church building. There are beautiful murals on the walls depicting religious scenes. The acoustics are a bit tricky to cope with due to the echo and would advise the use of amplification to distribute the sound...More
Visited the Mansfield Traquair Church as it was the venue for the Whisky Fringe, so able to sample some great Malt Whiskies in fabulous surroundings.
The Church is no longer used for worship (indeed it houses the SCVO Offices), but the cleared floor space can...More
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The
top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
