What is Falkirk? Well, it is a town in Scotland's central belt, located between Edinburgh and Glasgow in the Forth Valley, which is bursting with brilliant contrasts and outstanding attractions.

Falkirk is well-known for being the location where films like Hamlet, starring Mel Gibson, and TV series like Outlander have been filmed. However, its fame comes from the real battle that took place in this city. In 1298 the army of William Wallace fell to the English under Edward I but in 1746 Bonnie Prince Charlie defeated the Hanoverians in the other battle of Falkirk.

In addition, Falkirk is also famous for its large number of monuments, for example: the Kelpies (they are the world's largest equine sculptures and they were designed by Andy Scott) and The Falkirk Wheel ( it is the world’s only rotating boatlift, which is used to connect the Forth & Clyde and Union canals in central Scotland).

To conclude, I would like to say that Falkirk looks like a fantastic place to visit since it is full of atracctions, art galleries, events, activities, historical treasures and modern wonders for people of all ages.
