WTLS Venue - Our Dynamic Earth

With the spectacular backdrop of Salisbury Crags and the impressive canopy structure, Our Dynamic Earth is a unique venue with a subtle heritage twist.

Our Dynamic Earth






Our Dynamic Earth is centrally located in the Holyrood area of Edinburgh, near the stunning Scottish Parliament building and at the foot of Arthur's Seat. Get directions by air, train, car and foot here.


Scotland’s inspiring capital city is a fusion of fabled streets and historic buildings, contained within a vibrant modern city. In the midst of these gracious surroundings, Edinburgh is alive with inspiration and innovation. Recently recognised by Google eTown Awards as the second most tech-savvy town in the UK.

For centuries it has nurtured some of the greatest minds in philosophy, economics, finance, literature, law, medicine, engineering and architecture. Often referred to as the ‘festival city’, Edinburgh offers a year round programme of arts and cultural events.

Scottish Parliament

Edinburgh is home to the Scottish Parliament, holds the national museums and national collections of art, has four universities, the national headquarters of banks and financial institutions and a thriving new sector in life sciences and bio-technology.

A close-knit and easily accessible city where most attractions, lights and sights, and green spaces are within easy walking distance from Our Dynamic Earth and from our accommodation packages.

If you have a little extra time, Edinburgh is the best place to explore Scotland, famous for its historic castles, traditional Highland games and beautiful lochs, the home of haggis, golf and Whisky, the place for stylish shopping and the perfect stage for new and exciting events.

If you have some free time in Scotland as part of your stay for the World Towns Leadership Summit, we encourage you to explore all that Edinburgh and its surrounding areas have to offer. Visit Scotland is Scotland's national tourist agency and their website offers a range of information about events, places to visit and things to do. You'll never be short of something to do or see in Scotland! Visit Scotland here.
