The helix is a great place

Most people go straight to see the kelpies but they're missing out on the Helix. Walk around the grounds with your family, friends and dogs you'll love it.

What a breathtaking sight. One can only look in wonder at this masterpiece of engineering ironwork. The skill of bending and moulding the components to the shape of a pair of magnificent horse heads...left us in awe.

Have been there a few times and have always thoroughly enjoyed it! Didn't expect much as it's a sight seeing location so there's not much to go wrong. However the kelpies are beautiful in my opinion and in a great location / setting and would be surprised if anyone really hated their visit.

Until you get close to these sculptures, you really don't appreciate the life in their form, every feature has been shown, the nostrils , the eyes and throat and horses mane, they are exquisite, which for something 100 foot tall is surprising, they really do have a life about them and don't look at ll out of place. stunning.

We visited the Kelpies at dusk and it was amazing with the lights being on and changing colour. The weather was miserable but this amazing sculpture soon took our mind off this. We will be back!

A must for visitors to the area. Seeing this attraction in photographs just doesn't do it justice, only close-up can you appreciate the scale and beauty of the Kelpies. Would also loved to have visited at night to see them lit up but time didn't allow us. The day we arrive there was a festival in the Helix Park with... More

Great place to take the kids for a cycle or just a walk around the water. The Kelpies is a great attraction for all the family. Overall it's a great family day out.
