An Edinburgh wedding is a sure way to capture the imagination of your guests and add a personal stamp to your big day. Steeped in centuries of history, with its extraordinary castle, delightful urban greenery, and striking architecture, Scotland’s capital city serves inspiration at every turn.
Nestled peacefully amongst the Georgian designs of Edinburgh’s West End, The Bonham Hotel is a unique, idyllic venue for your intimate wedding. Originally constructed in 1872, our luxury boutique venue recently underwent a multi-million-pound refurbishment, carrying the elegance of the listed building into the 21st century.
A unique Edinburgh wedding hotel
Whilst most of the West End provides an energetic breath of life into Edinburgh’s city centre, the quite leafy crescent of Drumsheugh Gardens delivers a perfectly formed package of tranquillity, pretty paved paths, and a sophisticated bridal backdrop.
A mere stone’s throw away from central Princes Street and Edinburgh Haymarket, the Bonham Hotel is conveniently located close to public transport stations, allowing easy accessibility for both guests and the main bridal party. The surrounding area has a delightful range of independent cafes, shops and restaurants, and is a charming place to relax before (and after) your celebrations.
