Riddle’s Court

Riddles Court

Riddle’s Court is a hidden gem in the centre of Edinburgh recently re-opened after extensive restoration and renovation. An A-listed former merchant's house, located in the heart of the Old Town, just steps away from Edinburgh’s famous castle. Hidden away until recently, it is a beautiful and atmospheric building making it a unique venue for exceptional events and spectacular entertaining. Located within the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Edinburgh, Riddle’s Court is the perfect backdrop for weddings, civil partnerships and special occasions. This unique historic building offers a variety of indulgent rooms, a private courtyard hidden from the hive of activity in the Old Town and exquisite cuisine. From the moment you enter from the Royal Mile the venue exudes character and charm with a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere away from the bustle of city life. Riddle’s Court has a range of rooms to suit your event, from the intimacy of the Seton Room to grandeur of the Library Room. The 1590s building houses unique features including exquisite painted ceilings, authentic working fireplaces and panelled rooms – all of which have been painstakingly restored by skilled craftsmen. As the building was restored contemporary interventions were added to transform the space into a state of the art venue. Bringing the beauty of the old up to date with modern life including full lift access.
