University of Edinburgh: 13-15 South College Street
Prior to becoming a place of study, the building at 13-15 South College Street was a site of worship for nearly 200 years and, before that, a bowling green. Come and find out more about the history of the site and its various activities since 1742 – several of which have been ‘firsts’ for Edinburgh! There will be displays, presentations and a self-guided tour.
Visitors will have a chance to find out about the building’s history and how the successive changes in the churches based in South College Street have been linked with the changes and disagreements which affected the 18th and 19th Century church in Scotland. Information about the University’s projects currently based in the building and the Edinburgh & South East Scotland City Region Deal will also be available. Visitors will also be able to find out more about the Edinburgh Futures Institute’s plans for the former Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh site on Lauriston Place.
Booking is not required.
