Located in the heart of Falkirk's traditional town centre, Falkirk's present Steeple has been an iconic part of the town's streetscape for over 200 years.

The Falkirk Steeple Heritage Centre is staffed by volunteers from the Falkirk Local History Society who provide visitors with guided tours of the building including the prison cells. The last day for visits this year will be Saturday 14 October 2023.

A series of interpretative panels tell the story of Falkirk since the middle ages. Don't miss this opportunity to see first hand the original Steeple bell which is older even than the famous Liberty Bell, and learn about some of the amazing characters who have visited the Steeple over the years.

With the exception of the ground floor display, the majority of the building is accessible only via a narrow spiral staircase.
