The redevelopment of the Burgh Halls strengthens its traditional role as Linlithgow’s Town House. The magnificent building is now used to stage a wide range of events, social and community celebrations, weddings and, of course, the infamous Linlithgow Marches. The Halls also offers a self-help visitor information service, box office and a cafe.
The lower floor, which previously housed the visitor information centre, is now used as a resource space to study arts, crafts and heritage and also as a base for informal arts workshops and practical sessions for adults and children.
The ground floor encompasses a self-help visitor information service which includes free internet access to help you plan your visit or onward journey. The back of the building has been opened up for the first time, revealing a glass fronted cafe overlooking the peaceful Rose Garden.
The Halls offer a year-round visual arts programme which will be located in the light and spacious art gallery on the first floor. This beautiful space ensures that any exhibition will be set in the finest surroundings. On the same floor the impressive event space towards the rear of the building opens out onto a large outdoor terrace which boasts fantastic views of both St Michael’s Church and Linlithgow Palace.
The event space on the top floor overlooks the historic heart of Linlithgow and offers an ideal venue for any important gathering!
Make sure you visit this fantastic new venue.
