- What a beautiful park, gifted to the City of Dunfermline by Andrew Carnegie. It’s no surprise that this beautiful park is a popular venue for weddings and special occasion photos. It really is quite stunning and the sweeping lawns accentuate the long views and beautiful garden landscaping. There are numerous park benches where you can sit and relax. The grey squirrels are quite cheeky and always looking for a treat, if you feel inclined to share something with them.Written 2 August 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Well, what can I say? We had the absolute pleasure of visiting the Scottish Vintage Bus Museum for their open weekend. We came in our Motorhome on Friday morning and stayed until 4 on Sunday. What a fantastic weekend it was too. There was so much to see and do. A variety of vehicles ranging from the very old, right the way through to brand new. There was a great selection of stalls in the top shed with a fantastic selection of things to buy. The highlight for me was being able to see the collection out of hours and watch the owners test run some of the vehicles on the track. The organisers, members and volunteers are a big part of this very successful weekend. I honestly have never met such a friendly bunch of people. I can’t single out one person as they were all amazing, from the gift shop to the control centre. The people made this event perfect. I’m already planning for next year and will definitely visit sooner (especially now I’ve been talked into joining as a member). A huge thank you to everyone that made this weekend possibleWritten 21 August 2023
- My wife and I both had an Ultimate Drivers Experience. The whole day was excellent, thrilling and we learned a lot, especially when considering how little time we really spent with instructors. Due to the weather being a bit on the wet side, we started off with the rally experience, doing 5 laps clockwise followed by 5 anti-clockwise. Muddy fun! Lunch followed, which was included in the price, at Kinnairds Bistro close to the track, and the food was very nice, definitely not an after thought! I had a beefburger, the wife had a chicken burger, both were huge and very good quality! After this we headed to the track for 5 instructional laps in what must have been a race-spec Honda Civic because boy was it fast. Then we were let loose in the single seat formula race cars. I don't know how to describe this experience. I could try, but words aren't enough! I couldn't stop smiling for quite a while after blasting round the circuit for 10 laps. As if this wasn't enough, we were then taken to the go-kart track for a 6-heat race followed by a final. Chaos, but the fun kind! There were 20 of us and all wanted to win, so you can guess how many times we all spun off the track. The staff at the circuit were all very helpful, chatty, and above all proved they knew exactly what they were talking about when instructing us and demonstrating how the experts do it - shout out to Andrew and Michael, my rally and track instructors respectively, and to Graham who had to put up with my wife giggling all day! I was expecting to have a good time, but I was not prepared for the Ultimate Driver Experience. Unforgettable!Written 9 November 2023
- We have been frequent visitors of Dunfermline in the past, but this newest addition is certainly something to rave about. The views from the upstairs galleries can't be beat, and there are even spaces for one to sit and relax and just gaze out the windows.
I noted in one room that there is a hook mounted on the wall that holds portable chairs, so one can take a seat, pop it up, and sit and rest while reading through the various information displays. So clever!
The upstairs features a time line through history pertaining to Dunfermline, and a very clever question and answer board. Also, artifacts that have been collected over time that pertain to the city as well.
In addition, there is a section devoted to the many contributions of Andrew Carnegie who was born in Dunfermline, and who gave away his fortune for the betterment of others.
There is also a cafe, and a gift shop, in addition to the huge library section that we never even entered!
I can't recommend this enough. There is no charge for admittance, and this is a perfect place to explore if you are a history buff.Written 20 October 2023
- We bought our tickets for the show at the ticket office in the Kingsgate Shopping Centre about five minutes away, but tickets were also available online. Lots of parking nearby on the night of the show and the stewards at the venue were efficient but unobtrusive. Our seat was on the lower level of the theatre with a great view of the stage. Decent leg room and comfortable seating, so not much to moan about. And the show “Get it on” was great fun.Written 20 September 2023
- We didn't get into the Abbot House Heritage Centre but we had a lovely soup and coffee in the gardens in September 2022
Worth a visit.Written 23 September 2022

- Fife leisure park has lots to choose from.
I would highly recommend the Carlton bingo club for a night out.
Bingo is brilliant. You can go home with more money than you come in with…. Some nights £1000 houses!
Excellent food too, and it’s cheap. Same with the bar, cheap and there’s a lounge area which is like a pub so you don’t get shusshed by the bingo professionals.
Huge arcade too. You must be over 18 to join as a member.
You can play bingo in a tablet instead of books which makes it really easy tooWritten 25 August 2021
- Lovely place but people ruin it, I'm here almost everyday as I live local, would love to know if there's any leash laws as whenever I take my dogs round on the lead I'm charged at by atleast 3 dogs each time and 1 of which is usually an aggressive one with no muzzle or a owner with no control over it. Really ruins it as my dogs love it, my smaller dog is actually scared of other dogs approaching while on the lead (fear reactive) because she's been attacked before while there and rushed at that many times.
Hopefully they either put a leash law in place or people be abit more responsible!Written 10 April 2023
- Dunfermline Athletic has been based at East End Park since 1920 when they moved the short distance from their former ground which had been swallowed up by the railway. This stadium has a bit of a retro feel to it. The playing surface is grass and there are almost 11,500 seats. Interestingly, the changing rooms are located under the east stand behind the goals. Another nugget worthy of mention is part of the stand is made from scrap metal taken off the liner Mauritania. I had a little tour round the stadium by Matt.Written 16 February 2022
