Spent a week in Llangollen and never tired of walking along the canal towpath. It was great to sit for a while at sunset in the moorings and see the horse drawn barges during the daytime. Recommending to all my friends.

This is a great place to visit, you can take a walk along the canal, or a ride on a canal boat. You can also walk down below the aqueduct to view it's splendour.

What an unspoilt area for walking and tranquillity. I found the Aqueduct a bit scary and not for children or anyone afraid of heights (as I discovered I was !) but I kept going and the walk alongside the canal was lovely. I must say the prices of food and drink at a mobile café at the moorings before you... More

Worth a visit to marvel at the ingenuity that built this canal bridge. The views from the middle of the bridge are quite special and you need to be without a fear of heights. The walkway is a pathway wide and the barges travel right alongside. All very safe but their ain't much room to spare.

We walked from Llangollen to the Horseshoe falls which was very picturesque and peaceful. We were a little disappointed with the falls themselves as we were expecting something a bit more spectacular. it was however, a lovely sunny afternoon and a great walk for the dog.

A scenic walk to the aqueduct from the Chainbridge Hotel took just under 2 hours, 7 miles or just half an hour into the town of Llangollen

Do not miss the canal and footpath above the town (it is a bit of steep climb) but its gives you amazing views and is beautiful. There are always barges chugging past and you can see the horse drawn boats (and take a tour). TIP: There are free loos at the canal boat tour centre and coffee shop.
