  • Murrayfield is a great day out. Everyone, and I mean everyone, goes to the rugby for a party. Ok, a drink is £5 and often the staff in the beer tent don't have a lot of experience but they work really...  more »
  • I attended the Robbie Williams concert at this venue. Sound was really good seating area was well spaced and comfortable enough. I have seen the concert at other stadiums and think this was the best.  more »

  • Went here for the rugby atmosphere before and after the game was phenomenal can't wait to return for the next match on the 19th November for the next game quite hard to find a place to park and trying to get on site parking is a nightmare as it seems to book out really quickly they need to make more spaces to accommodate fans other than that it's a great place
  • Went to play there during the rugby clinic organised by the Thebans. Great club and pitches. Haven't got the chance to visit the actual stadium but hopefully I will next time.
  • Visited here for a conference - all clean and decent facilities but nothing fancy, you're aware you're in the events space of a sports stadium and no mistaking it!
  • Entertaining behind the scenes tours given by passionate guides. It's Scotland's biggest stadium a place of agony and exctasy memory's and home to Scotland since 1925.
  • Great stadium and brilliant atmosphere for rugby internationals.
