The historic Dunbar Town House, built towards the end of the 16th century, contains what is considered Scotland's oldest functioning Council Chamber.
 
Spanning a history of more than 400 years, the building has recently been given a 21st century refurbishment and is now open to the public, complete with a brand new museum and gallery exhibition space managed by the Museums Service. 
 
Dunbar and District History Society are based within the building. they run an exhibition space as well as a local history search room.
 
On the upper floors there is now a community room, available to council and community groups for meetings and events, in addition to the Council Chambers, which can be booked for meetings, civil marriages and other functions.

If you are looking for an attractive venue for your meeting the Town House might be the place you are looking for. Details of the room hire charges (per hour) are below. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements!
