Falkirk Wheel Winter Works

Boat trips at The Falkirk Wheel will be unavailable between 3rd of February and 8th of March as part of the second phase of our winter works. The Visitor Centre will remain open Wednesday – Sunday (11am – 4pm) throughout the works.

During our annual winter MOT, we carried out a range of in-depth inspections of the many systems and structures that make up The Falkirk Wheel. Our inspections revealed the need to carry out essential maintenance to replace the gate bearings on The Wheel ahead of the boating season beginning in March. We’ll also be taking the opportunity to carry out some essential dredging around The Falkirk Wheel.

The water play parks and play park will remain closed throughout the works while we carry out maintenance.

The café and visitor centre will be open Wednesday to Sunday, 11am – 4pm.

We’ll reopen to boat trips on 8th March.
