The venue provides the truly unique experience of getting married and then celebrating in an atmospheric and historic space lit by magnificent stained glass windows originating from St Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh. Beautiful banqueting tables can seat up to 80 for dining and a further 40 guests can join the evening celebrations.
The chapel is soaked in history and retains all its original features, the scallop shelled oak pulpit, balcony and ornate Victorian stained glass windows all contribute to creating this special sense of place.
This beautifully restored 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”
