Access is via a narrow passage off King Street, adjacent to an estate agent.

Parking – not easy! Limited street parking is available outside the Meeting House, in the small (and expensive) NCP car park behind the Meeting House or in Greyfriars Pay & Display car park a few minutes’ walk away.

There is a car park in West Street, and a Council-managed public car park at the Military Club in Friars Street (on the opposite side of St Nicholas’ Church to the Meeting House) which is reasonably priced. The Horse and Groom pub in Eign Street has cheap parking.

A number of different buses stop in Bridge Street and Broad Street, both of which are near the Meeting House.  X4, 33, 36, 39, 411, 413, 440, 441, 447, 448, 449, 454, 456, 457.

Other buses terminate elsewhere in the city, but all termini are within 10 mins walk of the Meeting House.

There is limited cycle parking at the Meeting House, but more very close in King Street and Broad Street.

Daytime and evening room lettings details, for occasional or regular use;

The rooms are for groups and organisations that benefit society/the public/the community.

We do not allow the consumption of alcohol or gambling (inc. raffles), and generally not political parties, in the Meeting House. It remains primarily a place of public worship.

On request you will be sent detailed Terms and Conditions. We will need details of your organisation and what the rooms are to be used for. If you wish to have more than 60 people in the Meeting House at one time, this will need to be discussed, as it may be that marshalls have to be arranged.

A quiet pleasant comfortable building in Quaker ownership from  the early 1800’s. Three rooms of different sizes, all on the ground floor, carpeted. A kitchen with facilities for making hot drinks, but no supplies or storage for supplies .
