The Kelpies Tour

 

Up close and personal.

The Kelpies Experience Tour

Come and see the world's largest equine sculptures up close - and even go inside to marvel at the complexity and the engineering which created these fantastic pieces of art.

The best way to experience The Kelpies is on The Kelpies Tour. Join our 45-minute guided walking tour that takes you through the vision of Andy Scott, the story of the real life working horses of the area, the local history and the history of the canals.

The pinnacle of the tour is that you get to experience a Kelpie from the inside, and see for yourself the breathtaking engineering and design of The Kelpies.
