The Rivers Suite at Craiglockhart

Craiglockhart Campus is located within a leafy suburb in the south west of Edinburgh. It is conveniently accessed from the City Bypass as well as several local buses and has ample parking facilities.

The Rivers Suite, with its dedicated entrance, is made up of three rooms and has been recently refurbished and lovingly restored to its former glory. The addition of a brand new bar facility complements our new sumptuous suite of rooms.

The Siegfried Room is perfect for Civil, Religious and Partnership ceremonies with smaller numbers more suited to the intimate Wilfred Room.

Our beautiful and original 20th century chapel can be used to host your wedding breakfast for up to 120 guests and evening reception for up to 200 guests.

Within a wonderful setting, there are stunning views on the front lawns towards Edinburgh Castle which are perfect for official photographs.

"Just wanted to say a big thank you for all the hard work you put into making our wedding day the wonderful day it was.

We had such a magical day and everything went so smoothly.

The Rivers Suite also looked fantastic and the food was lovely – everything was just perfect.

Also, thanks to David for being so professional and calming!

We would definitely recommend The Rivers Suite as a wedding venue"
