Team Flavour recently enjoyed a real treat. The wonderful people at Convention Edinburgh were kind enough to invite us to a familiarisation trip, where we got to explore some truly impressive venues in Edinburgh. Flavour Venue Search are now proud to work with some of the best spaces in the Scottish capital. Here’s a round-up of our favourite unique Edinburgh venues.
An absolutely stunning venue! Barnbougle Castle dates back to the 13th century and has only recently been opened to the public. Standing proudly on the Firth of Forth shore, nestled within 2,000 acres of majestic parkland, this grandiose building has been renovated to a high spec whilst retaining its historic charms. We were greeted by a piper and sipped cocktails by the fireside, before being escorted upstairs to the magnificent great hall for dinner. Imagine having exclusive use of a castle. We felt like royalty and so will your guests.
THE ROYAL YACHT BRITANNIA
On the subject of royalty, would you like to party on Her Majesty The Queen’s former floating palace? We were invited aboard this historic royal yacht and given a tour, which included sitting on the Royal sofa, passing through the sun deck and glimpsing HRH’s bedroom. Moored in Leith, this floating venue has heaps of potential and several spaces for prestigious events. Most impressive was the state dining room, where up to 96 guests can dine in a setting where world leaders and A list celebrities have been entertained.
Sticking with the maritime theme, we took a short ride along the dock to Fingal, a beautiful 5-star floating hotel brimming with luxury. This former lighthouse ship has been renovated to an exquisite standard, fitted with 23 boutique cabins featuring plush lighthouse themed décor. The venue can be hired for exclusive use events, featuring a glittering ballroom below deck which is decked in bright woods, with a gilded ceiling that includes a retractable skylight. A beautiful space for corporate events or intimate weddings.
This state-of-the-art attraction showcases the history of our planet, taking visitors on a journey from the big bang through to modern times. Sat at the foot of Arthur’s seat, the striking architecture and array of spacious rooms are perfect for memorable conferences, gala dinners and large-scale events with a difference. Events can include an exhibit tour, taking guests through tropical jungles, volcanic surfaces and a room filled with a giant iceberg. This massive venue will leave a lasting impression.
BT MURRAYFIELD STADIUM
The home of Scottish rugby. The roar of the passionate Scottish fans is almost audible on non-match days. This famous stadium venue is easily accessible from the city centre and boasts 29 individual hospitality suites. There’s plenty of versatility for conferences, private meetings, corporate hospitality boxes and even dinners for over 1,000 guests. The team can help with security, catering and decoration to guarantee your event is a winner.
We’re looking forward to sharing the many other fantastic Edinburgh venues we visited with our clients.
