Brilliant experience here for the Edinburgh Derby. Parked a 15 minute walk away, the atmosphere was vibrant. Fantastic atmosphere throughout, my favourite ground I’ve visited so far. Food was good, toilets and facilities were tidy. Anyone who hasn’t been, should definitely put this on their ‘to do’ list. Stadium perk, they have soft leather spongey seats!

Attended hospitality at Tynecastle twice in a week and both times were absolutely fantastic. Was looked after so politely, friendly and professionally and the whole atmosphere of the day/evening was top drawer. Two wins for Hearts was pretty special too!!!

Took my wife to tyncastle for her first visit. we booked into the strongbow legends lounge and got seats in the main stand. We thought it was a great deal. The choice of beer was Bira morretti, Heineken. My wife couldn't get vodka soda which was a shame but she liked the beer. If there was Brewdog I would have been in my element 🤣. We got chicken or vegetable korma, stovies before the game. And the best halftime pies I've had at halftime. The facilities are fantastic and the staff are great. It was such a good experience. I can't wait to return. The pitch side views are great and the new stand looks great. Everything about it was fantastic. The lounge manager gave us a private hire taxi number which was great and it was about £10 after the discount to get to Waverly station. I can't praise this enough 👍

History (from Wikipedia)

Tynecastle is an all-seated stadium, split into four sections known as the Gorgie Stand, Main Stand, Wheatfield Stand and Roseburn Stand. The Main Stand was rebuilt in 2017, replacing an older facility designed by noted football stadium architect Archibald Leitch.[5] The three other stands were constructed between 1994 and 1997, with all having a distinctive goalpost roof structure made out of steel tubes.[14] Unusually, the framework sits at the front of each stand, which means that the support towers sit within 10 yards of the corner flag, forming an arch over the stand.[14] The stadium floodlights sit on top of the support towers, angled down towards the pitch, like the lighting rigs used at concerts.[14] The Wheatfield Stand, which seats just under 6,000 people, slopes at just under 34 degrees, the maximum angle permitted.[15] The Roseburn Stand (School End) was completed in August 1995 and cost £1.4 million to build.[15] The Roseburn Stand seated 3,676 when it was opened,[15] but 280 seats were removed from both it and the Gorgie Stand when the pitch was lengthened in 2005 to meet UEFA requirements.[16] The Gorgie Stand, which was completed in September 1997, contains the Gorgie Suite.[16]

I dare say that this was the best fried fish I've had in my life. A large and thin fish, such that the ratio of fried to fish is about one to one, perfect. Read More
