Coats Paisley

Coats Paisley is a stunning building. This landmark entertainment and events venue is steeped in history and architectural heritage.

The Coats family built the church in 1894 in memory of Thomas Coats. A philanthropist and devout Baptist, Coats was committed to the wellbeing of Paisley. Initially budgeted at £20,000, costs soared to an estimated £110,000 – over £6,000,000 today.

And once you get inside, you can see why! A church on one level, halls beneath and an eight-arched church crown spire combined to make it largest and most opulent Baptist Church in Britain.

It’s also a highlight of our Discover Paisley walking trail.

A multi-purpose venue

Significant events need a significant venue, and this is one of a kind.

From the moment you lay eyes on the building, you will get the sense of history and grandeur that makes us the perfect setting for any occasion. With an unmatchable atmosphere and versatile venue space, it will be a day to remember.

Get married in the beautifully renovated former church, host a business meeting in one of our many function rooms or host a small festival in our ballroom. Whatever the occasion, Coats Paisley can provide the ideal venue for hire in the heart of Paisley.
