St Mark's Episcopal Church

Door open days


St Mark’s is a neo-classical villa style building which was consecrated in 1828. The interior of the church has some fine Greek Revival detailing, good quality stained-glass and other fittings. The graveyard contains many monuments to military and naval officers based in Portobello during the 19th century. 

The combination of a church placed in line with a gateway and with the churchyard in a formal arrangement is unusual in Scotland and unique in Edinburgh. Please note, car parking in the grounds for disabled drivers only. 

There is on street parking close by. Also close to cycle paths on the Innocent Railway and the Promenade.
