Traditional concert hall with unusual woodwork and stained glass. Ideal circumstance for classical chamber music.

I attended a comedy performance as part of the fringe. We had balcony seats, these were incredibly hot and stuffy by the end of the performance. The view from the rear of the balcony is also not ideal

Strangely, although we have visited the Edinburgh Festival over a number of years, this was our first visit to the Queen's Hall. A warm, welcoming building with excellent acoustics, clearly displaying it's origin as a Chapel. Very good sightlines to the raised stage and a...More

This is the first time I have been to this small but intimate venue. The building was an old church which has been refurbished at one time and it still has what looks like the original seating. One of the few problems with viewing was...More

Went to see a concert here and it really is a great little venue. My issue here was that the security should check with the artist in advance to ascertain what their rules are regarding taking pics etc. Everyone was being encouraged by the artist...More

Went to see Robert Cray there recently. Very intimate venue of 900 maximum and the acoustics are very good. Really enjoyed the evening. The Hall does have a bar and the staff are helpful and friendly.

The worst venue I have ever been in. Tiny, uncomfortable seats. Half the seats in the place don't even face the stage. They make you stand in a corridor until minutes before a show. We went to see Procol Harum but it was far too...More

Why book early? Surely its obvious if you want the best seats? Yes, but there's another aspect to the Queens Hall - there are so many seats with either restricted or fairly non-existent views that you need to ensure you gain a seat with an...More

Loved the use of this building as a music venue. Liked the idea that you could have the option of standing or sitting depending on what was best for you. Despite a small technical issue with the main act came on, this was quickly resolved...More

Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for
just a few pounds. In August the student population is
replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
