The most complete Gothic church in Edinburgh - The Builder, 1865.
Grade A listed gothic church with 1930’s hall attached. The church was redecorated and re-lit in the early 2000s with a rich red scheme. The newly rebuilt Link building by Benjamin Tindall Architects will be open to the public for the first time, joining the church and church hall in a more accessible way, with a new entrance lobby and lift.
Visitors can learn about the Serbian boys who worshipped at St Peter’s during WW1. Billeted at George Heriots’ school the boys later introduced rugby to Serbia.
Architect: William Slater
Building Date: 1860
