Unlocking the Falkirk Area's Tourism Potential

Tourism is a Falkirk area success story. Over 800,000 visits each year contribute £148 million to our local economy. It not only creates jobs and supports local businesses but enhances the Falkirk area’s image and reputation as a desirable place for investment, work, and to live. At the heart of this success are iconic attractions like The Kelpies and the Falkirk Wheel. But we know there’s so much more to see and do. We’re here to help visitors experience more of the many great things that the Falkirk area has to offer.

You and your business are part of this success story. We want to provide you with the support you need to succeed and to make Falkirk a great place to stay and explore.

Take a look at the resources on offer to support your business.
