Overall Guide : The shopping is second to none and the parking is ample but there is a charge 50p 1 hour, £1 2 hours, £2 4 hours etc. There is a great variety of restaurants and take-aways all vying for your custom... more which is keeping the cost very reasonable. Growing up in Livingston (Livi) I have seen the town grow twice in size with a huge choice of homes being built and continuing to do so, there are new areas being added to the suburbs and within the towns existing areas all the time. Livi's main transport within the town are buses, these are ran mainly by First Group, the buses do cover every area, but do take a while to get around town if you are travelling from the outskirts. There are two train stations, south and north providing links to Edinburgh and Glasgow, the trains are regular with Livingston North having a train stopping every 20 minutes, except Sunday service which is hourly. Activities for teenagers is lacking if you cannot afford to pay for after school clubs or sports and hobbies, therefore there can be groups of kids from poorer backgrounds walking the streets and some can cause mischief occasionally by being roudy etc. In the town centre there are pubs and clubs which open late and provide a good nightlife for those who prefer a clubbing night out, there is a reasonable selection to choose from.
Not to be missed Almondell & Calderwood country park , McArthur Glen shopping centre , Howden Park Centre

Overall Guide : Hopetoun HouseHopetoun House can be described as one amongst the most impressive examples of ‘Georgian architecture’ in Britain. The credit for such a beautiful architecture goes to William Adam and Sir William Bruce. The origin of this house can be... more traced to the year 1699. The magnificence of Hopetoun House can’t be described ion words. It is bound to leave the visitors spellbound. Those who haven’t been to Livingston should make it a point to pay a visit at least once in the lifetime.Almond Valley Heritage CenterAlmond Valley can be mentioned as one of the independent museums which exists for preserving and interpreting environment and history of West Lothian.
