Tynecastle Stadium, Edinburgh

(4.2/5 based on 160 reviews on the web)
Tynecastle Stadium 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 first played at the present site of Tynecastle in 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 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, 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.

  • Located in a neighborhood in great charm in the Tin mood and red brick of the departure. 20 minutes walk from the train station to Edinburgh. Here we are passionate and it feels. The corridors of the Stadium are typically Scottish where you eat the meat pies and other very rich and fatty foods. I sat in the first row behind the goal. The stadium is beautiful. Icing on the cake: I got the Jersey of a player of the Hearts he gave short a perfect trip!
