Two equine sculptures 30m high constructed from stainless steel in a purpose built park with good visitor facilities and extensive parking. What's not to like? An excellent venue for getting outdoors on a crisp Sunday afternoon with an energetic grandchild. Thoroughly enjoyed the visit.

Truly magnificent. Café has excellent food at good prices. There is a very large kids adventure playground at entrance to the Helix Park. Nearest public bus stop is 15 minute walk away.

Because we were there with a wheelchair we could park quite close to the Kelpies themselves. The only fee was the 2 pound parking fee. The Kelpies are impressive but I would have loved to have seen them at night.
