Quaker Meeting House

25 September 2021 (12:00-16:00)


Edinburgh's Quaker Meeting House was built as the Original Secession Church in 1865, part of the Victoria Street development. It has been in Quaker hands since 1989. It stands at the foot of Upper Bow, on Victoria Terrace, enjoying views of Victoria Street and across the city towards the Pentland Hills. The exterior is a fine example of Italian Revival style, and the Meeting House is well-used by local Quakers, the wider community and as a Fringe venue.

Edinburgh Quakers welcome you to visit us on Saturday September 25th, between 12 noon and 4 pm. Information about the building's history and its current role will be available, with volunteers on hand to answer questions. Alternatively, do visit to enjoy a virtual tour, created by members of our community for Doors Open Day 2020, and see more information about the building and the history of Quakers in Edinburgh.
