The Linlithgow Burgh Halls were originally built in the 17th century and has been an iconic building to the town of Linlithgow ever since. The appearance and use of the building has changed a number of times over the last few centuries, so we went to along to see how it looked after its recent renovation.
The South Hall is one of the two largest function spaces they have and it’s a fantastic space. The Hall is filled with light with two modern chandeliers hanging from the high celling. The paintings above each of the two fireplaces at each end of the room give real character and individuality. Malcolm Fraser Architects, who coordinated the restoration of the Halls, managed to introduce modern design while maintaining period features.
This magnificent building has been completely transformed into a fantastic resource with a free art gallery, two contemporary function spaces and an outdoor roof terrace, making it ideal to host a wedding or any kind of event. In addition to all of this they have a great education space, visitor information and a relaxed café. The building has a fantastic, vibrant feel about it.
The spacious roof terrace is overlooked by the impressive St Michael’s Church and the terrace itself gives you a great view of the rose garden to the back of the Burgh Halls.
We loved visiting the Linlithgow Burgh Halls. The building is a great contrast of old and new and it continues to be an iconic part of Linlithgow’s heritage. It’s sure to be enjoyed by visitors and locals for many decades to come.
