Welcome to the home of the Falkirk Wheel!

We can’t not mention the Falkirk Wheel. It’s world famous. It attracts more than 400,000 visitors to Falkirk every year. It’s the only one of its kind and there is only one other [presumably lesser] boat lift in the whole of the United Kingdom.

That is surely one heck of an impressive wheel. Even so, there’s more to Falkirk than its colossal, rotating, blow-your-mind, one-of-a-kind boat lift.
