Traditional, Scottish working towns with their own unique identities offering visitors a warm welcome.
With plenty to see and do in both Broxburn and Uphall, they are well worth a visit for a fun or leisurely day out.
Originally agricultural communities, Broxburn and Uphall grew rapidly and merged together following the discovery of shale oil in the region in 1852. Both towns benefited and thrived during Scotland’s oil boom until its demise in 1957 at which point the shale mines had been fully exploited.
Today, with their excellent geographic location and close proximity to the M8 and M9 Broxburn and Uphall are commuter towns to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stirling and onwards travel northwards. Recent years has seen an increase in immigration to the area, particularly from Polish nationals, broadening its cultural diversity.
The Union Canal, another natural asset, stretches across the central belt of Scotland, cutting through Broxburn and provides the area with invaluable transport and tourism links.
There are currently no upcoming Teenage Market events in Broxburn and Uphall.
