Since the 1860s, the College has been based in Queen Street in the heart of Edinburgh’s New Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Throughout the centuries, we have continually adapted our buildings to make the best use of the space available and meet the needs of physicians.
Our buildings feature a stunning Great Hall used for meetings and social events for the College and external clients.
In 1986, we opened the Queen Mother Conference Centre, one of the largest purpose-built lecture theatres in Edinburgh, with tiered seating for 300 delegates. The Conference Centre has enabled us to provide physicians with an extensive educational programme and a offers a complete hub for conferences and events.
In order for us to remain at the forefront of health education, we have developed plans to transform the access to our buildings, improving the experience for visitors to the College and creating a new public exhibition space to showcase our collections.

We are continuing to fundraise to meet our ambitions for the Conference Centre.
Having already gained the financial support of Edinburgh-based organisations, we are seeking support from businesses and agencies across the UK with an interest in education and heritage, as well as from other societies around the World.
To achieve the funding target needed to deliver our longer-term plans we are continuing to seek a combination of grants, corporate and charitable donations, with a particularly focus on working with those in the fields of culture, medicine and heritage.
