Visitor centre at the Falkirk Wheel
The Falkirk Wheel and adjacent visitor centre were designed by RMJM. The visitor centre has an unusual profile with timber clad curved surfaces and inclined plane glazing to the front. It attracts on average half a million visitors every year.
The Falkirk Wheel
Opened in 2002 by the Queen, the Falkirk Wheel is a testament to the popularity of canal cruising in the modern era. It connects the Forth and Clyde Canal with the Union Canal, replacing a flight of locks which fell into disuse in the 1930s and had been built on. The wheel raises or lowers boats 24m (79ft) and takes five-and-a-half minutes to complete a rotation. It is now a major visitor attraction.
