Having done the canal once with a narrow boat now walked across. The aqueduct is magnificent, an iron trough held together with bolts and nuts, waterproofed with horse hair and stuff! Amazing and then sooooo old! Scary to. Walk across but. A living monument still in full use, you got to see and do ot!

Llangollen is the most beautiful town with lots of attractions suitable for everyone. There are lots of outdoor activities, a steam railway, horse drawn canal trips, aqua duct trips, cafés, a fabulous vintage tea room. It is also with easy reach of lots of other places including The Riverside Chocolate House, Lynn Brennig Reservoir, Bewts y Coed, Snowdonia, Chester Zoo... More

Apparently Sustrans have been instrumental in resurfacing the towpath, which meant we could walk from Llangollen to the Aqueduct at midnight. Lovely views and rich in wildlife.

Llangollen is a nice mixture of old village charm and the trappings you need as a day visitor. The bar in the canal is great to take in a cuppa or beer, whilst the river runs underneath your feet. The ice cream parlour is a tasty stop off and the small park at the end of the walk gives the... More

A great walk that has all the scenery you could want to see, everything from a world heritage aqueduct to a steam railway with countryside and canal boats along the way. A flat well surfaced tow path along the full length from Trevor basin to Horseshoe falls with toilets and parking at each end as well as in LLangollen. Llangollen... More

We decided to walk to the source of the Llangollen canal at Horseshoe falls, although very beautiful the falls were not what we expected, they are only very low level, I would even call them a weir. The canal is quite narrow at the source, it is only suitable as a water feeder, we saw some canoeist who had been... More

this is a very scenic walk, older school children palying and swimming in water- think they were celebrating breaking up for summer holidays from school. plenty of benches if you get a little tired or just want to take in the scenery. nice pub on the edge of the canal with lovely views, well worth the effort!

Walked from our campsite, Wern Isaf near Llangollan up hill then down lovely views, then along canal towpath to the Pontcysylite Aquaduct and then over it. Amazing structure. Educational but large gaps between railings, so care needs to be taken with small children and dogs.
