Unlike many of its historic neighbours, the town of Livingston did not even exist until 1962, when it was built as part of the post-World War II New Towns Act in a bid to ease the overcrowding in Glasgow. Since then, various industries have played a role in the town’s growth and development including shale oil and technology companies. In fact, at one point such companies were so prevalent in Livingston and the surrounding area, that is became known as ‘Silicon Glen’.
Today Livingston has a thriving retail sector and boasts a huge modern leisure complex with over 150 stores, cafes and restaurants. If shopping isn’t quite adventurous enough for you, you can also have a go on the climbing walls and zip wires they have on site, treat the kids to a soft play birthday party, or attend one of the regular interactive events they host. For those who prefer more peaceful, rural pursuits, Livingston is also home to the Almond Valley Heritage Trust, where nature-lovers can enjoy endless woodland walks, a visit to the petting zoo or even an off-road tour of the local area on a tractor.
