Livingston was a small village until the 1960s when it was developed as a New Town, and is now one of the largest in the area. In contrast with its historic neighbours, this is a town that delights in the modern.
With large shopping areas such as Livingston Designer Outlet and The Centre, it is a popular place for locals to visit for a spot of retail therapy.
Nearby attractions include the charming Almond Valley Heritage Centre, a museum and farm centre where children can get close to animals, enjoy tractor rides and trips on the narrow gauge railway.
Across the motorway and into Uphall and Broxburn.
