Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Not sure what we would find, my daughter took my wife and I (along with her youngsters and wife) to this attraction and giving that it is not full of massive rides etc., it does provide an enjoyable day out.
    Clearly running as a charitable type organisation rather than purely commerial gives a much more personal feel to it. They do have plenty to occupy every age and you can easily spend 3-4 hours here, even in pretty poor weather.
    When we arrived, it was a halloween theme with a number of features geared to the festivities of the event. Apparently they change many of the exhibits to reflect the season.
    Staff were very good, friendly and where necessary, helpful in answering questions or pointing the way and the feeling that you don't have to have your hand in your pockets constantly, is a bonus.
    Certainly worth every penny (and that was in a pretty dreich day).

    Was a great rum tasting experience with knowledge of the history of rum. The complimentary rum punch was a great reminder of home (The Bahamas). I definitely recommend for anyone looking for an authentic Caribbean/African rum experience.

    Great place to shop for deals, especially for M&S, BOSS and some athletic stores like NIKE and Under Armour. Not thrilled when it was crowded, but during midweek it’s a great place to do your shopping anxious free!

    This refurbished venue is a must go to for a day time family outing or for people visiting StJohn’s hospital Livingston to recharge and enjoy great food and service from the friendly staff, plenty of walks for the family dog and interesting exhibitions.

    I was at this church earlier this year to witness two young brothers from our own Church being baptised. It is a very well laid out modern design.

    The members of this church that assisted with the catering after the baptisms, were very friendly.

    I am sure that you will be given a very warm welcome if you choose to visit them.

    I've visited the Tony Macaroni Arena, or Almondvale Stadium as it's otherwise known, on several occasions to watch football and also for work. It's a small, modern stadium and is fairly compact. I visited today to watch the Livingston v Celtic game and the ground was fairly close to capacity resulting in a good atmosphere. Livingston don't usually get big attendances and so the atmosphere isn't normally as vibrant. The sightlines from our seats in the West Stand were pretty decent. Overall it's a good place to watch football but it's just a shame about the name. It must be one of the most ridiculously named stadiums in football, due solely to sponsorship. Needs must I suppose!

    It was great fun. I obviously can's say much about the puzzles as that would spoil it for others - but there were a variety of them, and some require a bit of team work to complete.

    As you drive from Edinburgh along the M9 you can see huge red piles of waste this is from the 19th century vast Shale Oil Industry that has now vanished. But it was 'Praffin Jack' who made it possible to light ones home with paraffing lamps. It only went out of business when Grangemouth opened in 1923 and started using oil from the Middle East. Today this land grows grass and sheep graze - but it was heavy industry then. This is what they now do in Alberta Canada - a must for all Canadians.
    The museum is a fascinating glimpse into a now vanished past, but Scotland led the way. Over the hill onee can see the Grangemouth refinery - or the Culross Palace built on the wealth of coal from under the Forth.
    This museum is a hidden gem for the curious - both young and old. And they have a pleasing cafe with good coffee and good cakes. A hidden joy, and well worth a visit. We took almost two hours and then a coffee. Enjoy
