How Easy Was The Ground to Get To (from the station, by car, etc)
The ground is quite close to the city centre so traffic can be a right pain.

If Applicable, How is Parking Near The Ground?
For a ground so close to the city centre, there is surprisingly ample street parking.

Based on Where You Were Sat, How Was the View?
Back row of the lower tier of the Famous Five Stand, flawless. The ground has been modernised on all sides now.

How Were The Stewards on The Day?
No problem

If You Ate at The Ground, How Would You Rate the Food?
Ate outside

How Was The Atmosphere At The Ground, From Both Sets of Supporters? Does the Stadium Hold the Noise?
Its a shame Hibs were so bad...the first 15 minutes or so and before kick off was as good as Ive heard from a home crowd. Sadly they were trounced 7-0, so that died away fairly quickly...

How Are the Pubs and Local Attractions in The Local Area?
A million places to choose from along Easter Road and Leith Walk. Chips, rice and sweet and sour sauce being the rather odd choice I went with! It sounded too good to ignore!

Overall Score Out of 10?
Edinburgh is a great city, and Hibs a very good day out Id recommend.
8/10

I live in Edinburgh, so got a bus. I hadn't been into the Leith area before, but there was a sea of green shirts from the other side of town so just followed them. Now that I've lived here longer and know it better then I think it's pretty well located within easy reach of the city centre.

If Applicable, How is Parking Near The Ground?
I think there's quite a bit of parking nearby. Driving in the city centre in general though is a nightmare - all one way streets, bus lanes and tram lines.

Based on Where You Were Sat, How Was the View?
I was in the back row of the South Stand lower tier. It's a nice stadium with 4 new modern stands, so I don't think there's any bad views.

How Were The Stewards on The Day?
No issues. They use the same G4S people that most Scottish clubs use.

If You Ate at The Ground, How Would You Rate the Food?
I just ate at home before.

I was very, very impressed with the Hibs fans. Loud, passionate and consistent throughout the game, even when it wasn't going their way.

How Are the Pubs and Local Attractions in The Local Area?
Leith isn't my favourite part of the city, but there's quite a lot nearby. And of course you have the whole of Edinburgh within a short walk, which is an incredible city.

Overall Score Out of 10?
9/10
Nice stadium, good location and excellent fans. It was only £15 for a play-off game too. I'll be going again, even though Hearts is much closer for me.
