The recent restoration of the canals for navigation and leisure has created The Falkirk Wheel at the canal intersection. The Falkirk Wheel, the world's first and only rotating boatlift, was designed to connect the Union Canal with the Forth and Clyde Canal 115ft below.
Since the Wheel's opening in 2002, people have been able to travel between Edinburgh and Glasgow, with the route popular for cycling and walking as well as the hiring of canal barges. Today Falkirk has a wide range of cultural facilities.
Callendar House in Falkirk is a museum and visitor attraction, with permanent and changing exhibitions and historical research facilities. Falkirk Town Hall is a major venue for performing arts, entertainments and film. Many other events take place throughout the area, including Big in Falkirk, Scotland's national street arts festival, held annually in May.
