Mansfield Traquair

Mansfield Traquair - Edinburgh’s ‘Sistine Chapel’ is simply extraordinary. Located in the heart of the city and lovingly restored to create a versatile space.

From the grand neo-Romanesque architecture to the truly exquisite murals of Phoebe Anna Traquair that adorn the interior walls, its absolute grandeur and beauty have made Mansfield Traquair Edinburgh’s most spectacular and surprisingly versatile and flexible venue.

Having undergone painstaking restoration to preserve and restore it to its former glory, it is now recognised as Edinburgh’s ‘Sistine Chapel’. Events here are spectacular from the very second you enter through the magnificent doors. You can’t fail to experience a sharp intake of breath when the cavernous spaces make their first impression. Mansfield Traquair is an inspiring choice for formal receptions and dinners and its versatility lends style to meetings and conferences alike.
