Tynecastle Stadium, Edinburgh

4.2
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.

    ....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 »

  • The home of my beloved Hearts..... used to rate this place 5 out of 5 stars for atmosphere and entertainment however the team and manager have let every fan down this past season and a day at Tynecastle is no longer enjoyed. To make things worse the quality of the food got worse as did our league position. Lets hope the signing of Christope Berra and the new main stand can inspire Ian Cathro to make some HUGE changes that are required on the pitch and the rest of the stadium gets updated as required. Fingers crossed I can add more stars next season...
  • Been here a few times now and got to say loving the new store. Very bright and well stocked. Can't wait to visit again in the future to see how much the building improvements are going
  • I love Tynecastle, always has a great match day crowd. I recommend a visit even if you're not a hearts fan as you just can't beat the atmosphere in this place
  • Good stadium, terrible food service - don't know why it's still so disorganised?
  • I loved my time over there I went to see them play it was amazing!
