On a summers day in August it was lovely. Plenty of seating to sit and stare at the wild life- Cormorants fishing on the weir edge. Lots of eating establishments. Boat Trips and motor launch/boat hire.

perfect for an afternoon walk along the river on a nice day. There are several restaurants to eat at along the way and also the option to do river cruises or to take a pedello out along the Dee.

All set up to book a canal boat crossing, then at the last minute decided to walk across the aquaduct, it was amazing - I have to point out I hate heights, but with keeping my hand on the railings I took advantage of the amazing views and walked across and back.

Loved the Park, with its ancient Well, and motto etched into the stones. Difficult to park the car by the River, but disability badge helped. Lots of places for buying cups of tea, coffee, ice cream, etc. Very good place for memorable photos.

This stretch of the Dee is second to none lots of interesting things to see and do. Ideal for stroll with fine restaurants and bars nearby and a good place for a picnic.
