Central, free public art gallery beside Waverley Railway Station, the Fruitmarket Gallery was originally built as a fruit and vegetable market in 1938, but has been operating as a visual arts space since 1974.

The focus of the work is international and Scottish contemporary art. Exhibitions often feature work exploring the outer limits of modern design, optical trickery, and immersive art.

Gallery also runs lectures and events programmes for visitors.

The gallery space is available for private hire, day or evening, with the option of a tour of the current exhibition.
