Elegant, Unique, Yours

Located in Glasgow’s Merchant City, Trades Hall is a stunningly beautiful, historic venue, which creates the perfect backdrop for every event. Completed in 1794 it is the ideal location for both intimate and large wedding celebrations (catered and non-catered), holding up to 250 guests and giving you something truly unique.

This romantic and picture perfect venue has recently been refurbished with state of the art air-conditioning and architectural lighting to ensure you and your guests experience maximum comfort.

It is home to The Trades House of Glasgow, established in 1605 and now a registered charity (SC040548), giving support to the people of the city. All income arising from events held within the building is therefore used to support charitable purposes.

There are six unique function rooms that can be hired individually or in any combination, with exclusive use of the building. The Grand Hall is the jewel in the crown of Trades Hall, featuring baroque chandeliers and late Victorian décor.

Well practiced in hosting important events in the city, you can rest assured that Trades Hall’s experienced team will deliver the best possible day for you.

The Trades Hall would like to thank George Mahoney, Blake Faraway, View Photography, Stephen Bootle Photography, Fern Photography, Gardner Hamilton Photography, Mark Timm Photography, Del & Jayjay Wedding Photography and Cameron Swanson for the stunning images throughout our website.
