St Andrew's and St George's West Church

Door open days

Built in 1784 as the New Town’s first church, St. Andrew’s (Now St. Andrew’s & St. George’s) Church was designed by Major Andrew Frazer. Its elliptical plan, Britain’s first, responded to a restricted site after Sir Laurence Dundas built on the church’s intended location.  The church has a Georgian interior, Adam-style ceiling, notable glass (Webster and Strachan), Wells Kennedy organ, original peel of bells (restored 2006), and interpretation panels.
