What an incredible sight!!!! These mythical beasts are fabulous. The construction and artistry are amazing. There is a book you can buy at some cost that explains about them but I think short (and free) information boards would be helpful. Super walks around the park....More

Such a beautiful sight to see, eye catching from the road but much better to stand below and take in the shear size of these amazing sculptures. Visitors center is welcoming with a little area for younger children to sit and colour and scaled models...More

We came to see the Kelpies on our last visit to Falkirk. The park was clean, tidy yet dog friendly. There was ample parking too. Its a shame you can't access the car park closest to the Kelpies at night, it would have been good...More

Really enjoyed our trip to the Kelpies. I first spotted them from the road and they are just so eye-catchingly powerful and dominant. They are also great to take pictures of. The visitor center is great and you can see how it was all constructed....More

Well worth the time to make a stop, to see these magnificent sculptures. Amazing to view. Sadly it started snowing so I didn’t stay long enough to visit the cafe....

A four mile walk from The Wheel along the canal path brings you to the magnificent Kelpies two horses, one looking up to the stars and one looking down to the water. Magnificent sculptures which are illuminated at night. Well worth a visit.

Great tow paths around Falkirk to cycle to the Kelpies. Delicious elderflower presse at the cafe. Great day out.

Hi the Helix is an outdoor play area and park. Ideal for kids. It closes at dusk so times vary especially as the clocks have now gone back.
