Weddings, Conferences & Events

Only 30 minutes from Edinburgh, The Harbour Chapel is a unique and diverse East Lothian wedding, conference and events venue for up to 120 guests. This spectacular former church with its elegant reception bar creates an exquisite destination for any occasion.

Lovingly Restored

Beautifully restored with a contemporary twist, this former historic Wesleyan Chapel is the oldest in Scotland and dates back to 1764. John Wesley preached here on 21 occasions and in 1770 he wrote:

“In the evening I preached at the new house at Dunbar, the cheerfullest in all the Kingdom”
