Riddle's Court is a picturesque A-listed merchant's house just steps away from Edinburgh's famous castle. The 1590s building houses unique features including exquisite painted ceilings, authentic working fireplaces and panelled rooms all of which have been being painstakingly restored by skilled craftsmen. It is closely linked to the work of Patrick Geddes, environmentalist and father of town planning.

The building has been restored and new, contemporary interventions added to transform the space into a state of the art venue.
