What is it?  The Signet Library 

Where is it? Parliment Square, Edinburgh 

A bit about it: The beautiful 1822 Georgian building is the home for The Society of Writers to Her Majesties Signet – an association of Scottish lawyers and solicitors. The Upper Library is beautifully decorated with an ornate ceiling featuring images of Apollo and the muses and the collection of texts include poems by famous poets such as Shakespeare and Burns and pieces by Newton.

Why this is a valentines special: You can get married in either The Lower Library or the Upper Library and I think they are both beautiful rooms! Can you image getting married there! swoon!
