Attraction Information

All the family will enjoy a wonderful day out at Almond Valley Heritage Centre, situated at the heart of Scotland just outside Livingston, West Lothian.

Nestled in a pleasant riverside site with woods and green spaces that extend for almost a mile, there's so to do and see. The picturesque buildings and paddocks of Mill Farm are home to many friendly farm animals, including Highland cattle, rare breed sheep, goats, ponies, horses, and some very inquisitive ducks.

There's always something happening, with milking, feeding, talks and handling sessions throughout much of the year, and a programme of seasonal crafts, games and activities for children during the school holidays.

Kids can let off steam and engage their imagination in a range of unique play facilities including a simulated archaeological dig, a play mine, toy tractors, pedal carts and trampolines. Even if the sun isn't shining there are indoor play areas for all ages, and secrets to be discovered in the museum.

But you don't need to be a kid to enjoy Almond Valley. Seasonal tractor rides and trips on the narrow gauge railway transport you through a pleasant landscape to peaceful riverside walks. The working watermill and machinery shed provides an insight into West Lothian's rural past whilst the museum tells the fascinating story of Scotland's famous shale oil industry.

Reviews

Great day out but price more expensive than stated 4 out of 5 stars

I recently took my children here we had a great day out kids loved it,but when we arrived it was £36 not £28 family ticket stated on the web site.when I asked the lady at the till about this she told me they have never done a family ticket and the website that I was looking at was not there’s,I explained to her that it was on the kids days out website which thousands of people use and everything else about the park was true so why not prices.she pointed to the board and said that is the price to get in,I didn’t think she was very helpful and didn’t seem to bother or take on board what I was saying she just brushed it off and stood there.apart from this everything was ok
