Portobello Town Hall
Portobello Town Hall is available for hire for a variety of events, including wedding receptions, concerts, public meetings and craft fairs.
The Wash House
The Wash House (aka Portobello Community Centre) is run by a volunteer committee, with part time support from the city of Edinburgh council. As a registered charity, it plays a vital part in providing the community with access to public space. The Wash House activities encourage and supports health, wellbeing and life long learning for the benefit of the local community.
With two available rooms, and a large hall complete with lighting rig, blackouts, PA, and stage, the centre is ideal for both professional and amateur arts activities and hosts plays, pantos, ceilidhs, film nights and music events. The Wash House caters for all ages and has a youth lounge for youth clubs which meet across the year.
Portobello Swim Centre
Our much-loved and restored Victorian baths are situated alongside the beach on the main Portobello Promenade, offering modern swimming pools, gym and fitness studio and home to Edinburgh's only authentic and publicly available Turkish Baths and Aerotone.
The 25 metre five lane pool has a moveable floor, which allows the depth to be altered making it even more versatile for pool based activities. There is also a 17 metre pool, mainly used for teaching.
The well-equipped, ground floor gym has 31 exercise stations with a variety of strength and cardio training equipment, including free weights and fitness machines. The fitness studio features large windows overlooking the promenade and offers a variety of classes, including dance and high energy.
Portobello Golf Course
Portobello Golf Course, next to the new High School, enjoys Jubilee Field status and provides a 9 hole golf course that is ideally suited to beginners, juniors and seniors due to the flatter terrain. Nevertheless, it still provides a challenge for better players and it takes a good round to make par. The signature hole, the 9th would not be out of place at more renowned courses.
New members at Portobello Golf Club are always welcome and the club caters for all levels of ability, gender and age. Club membership fees include SGU membership, qualification for national handicap certificate, regular weekend and mid-week 18 hole medals plus ad-hoc fun competitions throughout the whole year. Green fees are not included but can be paid on the day or with an Edinburgh Leisure Golf Season Ticket.
Joppa Tennis Courts
Two all-weather courts are available along with a clubhouse. All year round club membership or pay per play during school holidays. Coaching available for adults and children.
Tumbles on Portobello Prom is a large, modern gymnastics facility and softplay venue that caters for all levels and ages, providing coaching programmes from pre-school, through to adult gymnastics and freestyle.
