The Falkirk Wheel
a stirling day out
Visit the Falkirk Wheel
Reconnecting the Forth and Clyde and Union Canals between Glasgow and Edinburgh and opened by British Waterways in December 1999, the Falkirk Wheel is the centrepiece to the Millennium Link canal project.
From the Visitor Centre, you can join one of The Falkirk Wheel boat trips.
The Falkirk Wheel provides a solution to the problem of transferring boats from the Forth and Clyde to the Union Canal.
You sail along a section of the Union Canal before the return journey and descend to rejoin The Falkirk Wheel Experience at the Visitor Centre.
Ascent and Descent on The Falkirk Wheel takes 45 Minutes
You can pre book your departure - so call the The Booking Line to book and confirm your preferred departure time. You should arrive at least 30 minutes before your allocated trip time, to collect your tickets and board the vehicle of your choice.
The best way to experience The Falkirk Wheel is by taking a trip on our breath-taking boat journey. The 50 minute journey lifts the boat up to join the Union Canal 35m above and sails smoothly from The Falkirk Wheel onto the Union Canal.
