Edinburgh City Council venues

This is where the City of Edinburgh Council conducts much of its business. In particular, members of the public can attend most meetings of the Council, Committees and Sub-Committees.

The Scott monument is a brooding, 200-foot (61m), Gothic spire which opened in 1846 in honour of the prolific local novelist Walter Scott. It has been called "the largest monument to a writer in the world".

The Ross Theatre (aka the Ross Band Stand) is the outdoor concert venue, with a seating capacity of 2500, in West Princes Street Gardens.

Church Hill Theatre was originally built as a church in 1892. Purchased in 1960 by the Council, it has served as a theatre for community and Fringe performers since 1965.
