Appleton Tower is the centrepiece of the University of Edinburgh's George Square Complex and offers five state-of-the-art lecture theatres, each seating 200 to 300 delegates, plus a teaching studio, seminar spaces and an extensive concourse area.

The Appleton Tower concourse space is particularly suited to exhibitions and poster displays, making this Edinburgh First venue ideal for lectures and presentations or as a breakout space for events held elsewhere in the George Square area.
