The Falkirk Wheel Child Friendly Attraction in Falkirk, Falkirk, Scotland


The Falkirk Wheel, the world's only rotating boat lift

Boat trips begin in the basin outside The Falkirk Wheel Visitor Centre, by boarding one of the specially designed boats. The boat starts its journey by sailing into the bottom gondola of The Wheel, which then makes a graceful sweep, lifting the boat up to join the Union Canal 35m above. The ascent takes approximately 15 minutes, allowing plenty of time to enjoy the stunning views of the spectacular surrounding scenery.

Once lifted, the boat sails smoothly from The Wheel straight onto the Union Canal. This passes along the aqueduct, through the 180 metre Roughcastle Tunnel and under the historic Antonine Wall. The boat will then return for an effortless descent that gently carries the boat down over the Visitor Centre, and back into the basin by the boardwalk.
