St. Mark's Unitarian Church
St Marks was built in 1835 by one of Scotland's leading architects of the Victorian era, David Bryce. It is a Unitarian church and has a liberal religious congregation. The Sunday Service is followed by a get-together over coffee at noon. Classical music lovers should prick their ears up as St. Marks has recitals and concerts throughout the year. It also stages an eclectic program during the Edinburgh International Festival. Enjoy the grand surroundings whilst nibbling biscuits and sipping coffee, refreshments are often provided in the interval. Amongst the acts that regularly appear is the Squair Mile Consort of Viols who deliver chamber music composed for the Viola da Gamba (viol) from the 16th and 17th centuries.
