Tynecastle, Edinburgh

4.2
Tynecastle Park is a football stadium situated in the Gorgie area of Edinburgh, Scotland, which is the home ground of Scottish Professional Football League club Heart of Midlothian. Tynecastle has a seating capacity of, which makes it the seventh largest football stadium in Scotland. Hearts have played at the present site of Tynecastle since 1886.HistoryAfter Hearts was formed in 1874, the club played at sites in the Meadows, Powburn and Powderhall. Hearts first moved to the Gorgie area, in the west of Edinburgh, in 1881. This pitch, known as "Tynecastle Park" or "Old Tynecastle", stood on the site of the present-day Wardlaw Street and Wardlaw Terrace. As this site was then regarded as being 'out of town', Hearts would sometimes stage two matches for the price of one, or set an admission price much lower than Edinburgh derby rivals Hibs. In 1886, with the city continuing to expand, tenements replaced the old ground and Hearts moved across Gorgie Road to the present site (also known as "Tynecastle Park", or "New Tynecastle"), which was leased from Edinburgh Corporation. Hearts played a friendly against Bolton Wanderers to inaugurate their new home on 10 April 1886. Tynecastle staged its first Scottish Football League match on 23 August 1890, when Hearts lost 5–0 to Celtic.

  • A regular at Tynecastle anyway, but did hospitality for my dad's birthday along with a couple of friends. Really enjoyable day, good and drink (especially the 1874 beer,PLEASE tell me you still do it?...  more »
  • Good game, good pre game food and really friendly staff and atmosphere. Will definitely be going back.  more »
  • ....but who cares. Any ground in which Newcastle win easily is a good ground. Could be better if there were clear signs as to where away fans should go!  more »
