Virgin Group has confirmed plans to open a hotel in Edinburgh, Scotland – the group’s first in Europe.

The 225-bedroom Virgin Hotel Edinburgh will be located in the landmark India Buildings at 1-6 Victoria Street in Edinburgh’s Old Town.

Facilities will include multiple dining and drinking outlets, including the brand’s flagship space, Commons Club, as well as numerous meeting spaces.

Virgin’s inhouse design team will work to preserve the historic property’s features, while “adding a sense of style and sophistication”.

Sir Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Group, said: “Edinburgh is such an iconic city and we’re thrilled to be able to say it will be the home of the first Virgin Hotel in the UK and across Europe.

“The people of Edinburgh have been so great in welcoming us to their great city; we can’t wait to open our doors to people across the country and, indeed, the world.”

Virgin Hotels currently operates one hotel in Chicago, US, which opened in 2015.

The group has so far announced plans for nine further sites in the US – Nashville, New York, Dallas, Palm Springs, Silicon Valley, New Orleans, San Francisco and Washington DC.
