How to get to Tynecastle Park
Tynecastle Park is in the Gorgie part of Edinburgh, to the west of the city centre and less than half a kilometre from Murrayfield. The main entrance for fans is on McLeod Street, off Gorgie Road (this is where all away fans enter), but there are also entrances on Wheatfield Street and Tynecastle Terrace. Buses are provided by Lothian (91, 2, 3, 21, 25, 33) and First (25, 27, 28, 427).
If you’re getting to Tynecastle Park by Avanti West Coast from Glasgow or England, disembark at Haymarket, and it’s a 20-minute walk along Dalry Road/Gorgie Road, or 5–10 minutes in a taxi.
What to do at Tynecastle Park
The main reason to visit is to see the historic Heart of Midlothian play their home matches. The Jambos have called this home since 1886, so if you’re a football history lover, you’ll want to visit the Heart of Midlothian Museum, located at the Tynecastle Terrace entrance. Note that the museum isn’t open on match days or during events. The stadium occasionally hosts live music and other sports, and there are several lounges, including the Skyline Lounge, used during matches and for corporate events at other times.
About Tynecastle Park
Tynecastle Park has been the home of Heart of Midlothian since 1886. The stadium used to have a capacity of around 50,000 but since its stands were gradually demolished and by 1997 the stadium was all-seating, with a capacity of about 20,000. The club is usually known simply as Hearts, but it might also be referred to as the Jam Tarts through rhyming slang, or The Jambos.
Concerts at Tynecastle Park
With close proximity to the much larger Murrayfield Stadium and other music venues in Edinburgh, concerts at Tynecastle Park have been few and far between. However, live music events have been hosted here and there’s nothing to suggest they won’t happen again. Notably, Tynecastle Park welcomed The Los Angeles Philharmonic when they hosted the opening event of the famed Edinburgh International Festival in 2019.
Train travel is an efficient way of getting to concerts at Tynecastle Park Stadium, with Haymarket train station located a mere 20-minute walk from the venue. If walking isn’t your thing, you can jump in a taxi straight from the station and reach Tynecastle Park in under 10 minutes.
