Welcome to Carlton Bridge Club

At the Carlton, we pride ourselves on welcoming all levels of player. Visitors can join any of our tournaments and we will try to find a partner if needed. Our custom-built bridge centre provides excellent playing and teaching facilities. Tournaments are scored using interactive technology and results are displayed promptly. We are pleased to offer our catering team, Westmains Catering, who provide a range of soups, sandwiches and amazing baked goods as well as the normal range of teas, coffees, soft drinks and a selection of alcoholic drinks.

We are located just to the North of Edinburgh city centre.  Details of the regular club tournaments are available here.
