A trip to Falkirk Wheel should be on every day out “to do list”. With endless activities on offer, this outdoor adventure is certain to keep everyone entertained.

Sail the waters on a boat trip that takes you from The Falkirk Wheel to join the Union Canal. Take in the sites with windows all around and see what your little ones can discover. Kids can run wild in the activity zone and scramble up ladders, slither down slides and crawl over rope bridges. For more water fun, head to the splashing water park and play with boats, dripping taps, and lots of cool water.

For something a little drier, there are walking trails too. Perfect for splashing in puddles or crunching in orange leaves dependant on the weather of course! Take a segway tour around the site, and do something "wheely" fun. Dry off and take home some memorabilia from the gift shop, or refuel with something delicious from the cafe.
