About Thorn House

Thorn House in Edinburgh was purchased in February 2007 and is located on Rose Street, one of the most beautiful pedestrian streets in the City and home to specialist shops and markets and close to some of the City’s best parks.

Formerly owned by the famous Jenners Department Store, the Centre takes up the second, third and fourth floors of a striking red sandstone Victorian building above retail space that is shared by the popular record store Fopp and the Abbotsford pub. 

It is home to many charities; shared work-space means great working relationships in the Centre develop quickly!
