(18/03/2020) - It is with regret that Falkirk Community Trust has decided to suspend all services from Wednesday 18th March until further notice in keeping with the Scottish Government’s advice on reducing social contact and maintaining the safety of all of our customers and staff.

Ideally located for an excellent view of the Kelpies, the Visitor Centre is the hub of The Helix. You can pop in and say hello to our friendly and informative tour guides who can book your Kelpies Tour, or help you shop for your favourite gift in our uniquely stocked shop.

Offering a unique range of souvenirs and keepsakes from limited edition art works to seasonal goods that would make beautiful gifts.

We worked really closely with Kelpies artist Andy Scott and have a fantastic range of Official Kelpie Merchandise to offer our visitors. We are also really proud to be working with lots of local producers and artists to create a range of lovely treats and gifts from across Scotland.

We are passionate about creating freshly prepared food at The Helix. Our ingredients are sourced where possible from Scotland and our food is handmade by our team of Cooks. 

Our location within the Forth Valley south of the Ochil Hills allows us to use just 2 national suppliers for all our produce which keeps our carbon footprint to a minimum. Each company was carefully selected after researching the suppliers they use for their dairy, meat and vegetables which make up the bulk of our ingredients.

The Visitor Centre Cafe is open 9.30 - 17.00 seven days. Hot food is served from 11.30.

There is an exhibition space where you can learn more about the Kelpies and the history of the surrounding Falkirk area. Children will love the colouring in and Lego building opportunities.
