Stroll into Falkirk’s Past

In 2016 we recruited some volunteers for a new venture, to be trained as volunteer tour guides. The volunteers took part in Scottish Tour Guide Association ‘Guiding is Fun!’ course and learnt the key skills to being a tour guide. Since completing their training the guides delivered walking tours around Falkirk’s historic town centre between June and September 2017.

The free tours will commence again in June 2018 and last approximately an hour and a half. Join our Tour Guides and take a stroll into Falkirk’s past. Discover the hidden stories behind some of Falkirk’s iconic buildings.
