Full Description
Traquair House has an extraordinary history spanning over 900 years and has strong associations with Mary Queen of Scots and the Jacobites. It is open to the public daily from Easter to October and is also a superb wedding venue particularly suited to smaller more intimate weddings. There is a Catholic Chapel in one of the wings of the House (seats 50) that can be used for any denomination. In the House the 18th century High Drawing Room is suitable for receptions (max 50) and the ground floor Dining Room can dine up to 34 guests. The grounds have several superb locations to site marquees and outside ceremonies can also be arranged in the yew tree circle, old walled garden, Cupid's garden and even in the Traquair Maze. Traquair also offers four luxurious rooms all furnished with antique furniture and four poster beds which can be hired on a bed and breakfast basis. Guests are also given exclusive use of the Lower Drawing Room in the evenings. Another unique aspect of Traquair is the eighteenth century working brewery which produces the world famous Traquair Ales which can be provided bottled or on draught for your wedding reception. There is ample accommodation for your guests in the locality from B&B's to 4 star hotels and Traquair has its own self catering property which can sleep up to 18 guests.

FAQ

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Recently some of the best weddings are the ones you didn't think were going to happen! A couple who had to change date 3 times, and were so informal and in love it was such a happy occasion with just the 2 of them in Cupid's Garden, and us. And a recent wedding for 20 guests from the US, who had an outdoor Outlander/Game of Thrones themed wedding in October 2021 - married in the Yew Tree circle and dining in the 18th century dining room by candlelight - wow it was magical and exciting for us to host! When a bride hugs me and says it is the best day of her life, it means so much.
