Venue welcomes

Ticketed events

The Old Dr Bells Baths is a much-loved listed building located in the heart of Leith. Originally home to the old Leith Victoria swimming pool, the renovated site is open as a multi-purpose venue and integral part of the community.

A beautiful example of Victorian architecture, the venue is a blank canvas allowing you to step out of the norm and do something a little different.
