An easy walk along the canal with such clear water - counted the trout as we went along! We walked earlier in the year and the horse pulled boats added to the experience.

Started the walk from Llangollen long stay car park £3.50 a day. A short stroll up to the towpath and on our way to Pontcysyllte aqueduct. This is a 4 mile walk one way but well worth it. The towpath itself is in very good order and the views spectacular. Several narrow boats were chugging along in either direction and... More

I love canal walks and they don't come a lot better than this - we started at Foncysyllte and went across the viaduct - on to Trevor with its lively basin and then to Llangollen (10 mile round trip) The path is excellent all the way and there is plenty of narrowboat activity to entertain! Scenery varies from pleasant to... More

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!

Parked in Llangollen Car Park and walked down to the River.This is spectacular at any time of the year,the water rages in Winter and in Summer you can paddle on the edges of the stones near to the playground.I love how it rushes under the Bridge,which is a very old one.Sometimes,in the Winter i have seen the water almost up...

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
