Absolutely amazing wedding venue!

The team at the Piping Centre couldn't do enough for us from the moment we enquired about having our wedding there until when we che ked out afterwards. They took away all the stress of planning our wedding and the day itself ran so smoothly. I stayed there for 2 nights and all the staff were amazing. The Piping Centre will always hold a special wee place in my heart. I couldn't recommend more!

Small wedding, perfect venue

We booked in December, married the next May, on a Saturday. Where else is that possible?! Perfect all round, a very happy day. Emily gave us great service, understood what we wanted, and that’s what we got. Ceremony in the auditorium, drinks in the museum, dinner in the restaurant. Food was better than we had had when testing in the public restaurant. We booked rooms which was ideal. Upgrade to the wines by the bottle, much nicer and reasonably priced.
