You must walk or boat across the aqueduct. It's a fantastic experience. Really not for those with vertigo, though. The gaps in the railings are rather wide and, on the canal side, there's only a foot or so of barrier. We walked to the aqueduct from Llangollen and loved it all.

Llangollen canal walk is enjoyable whatever the weather! Depending which way you walk you can either experience a ride on the horse drawn boats and then continue your walk towards the Chain bridge Hotel, then onwards to Horseshoe Falls! Or walk the opposite way, taking in views of the valley, the Panorama and climbing crags and stopping off for a... More

A post Christmas walk with family. Enjoyed by all. Exciting but not for the faint hearted to walk accross the famous Thomas Telford Aquaduct . The reward was lunch at the pub after crossing the Aquaduct. Highly recommended.

The staff were friendly and organized. The boat pilot was experienced and very capable in maneuvering the canal. It was really fun for our two hour ride, and very scenic.

Great walks along this canal - favourite one is to park at Trevor and then walk along to Llangollen and back - 9 miles or so. Watch for cyclists but great views and easy walking

Now I know why this is an English Heritage site- the only English Heritage Stretch of canal in the country. We didn't walk it but had hired a barge from Black Prince for the week and truly were fortunate with the weather and the time of year as it was busy but not rammed! Gorgeous yellows, reds, greens and browns... More

Love coming here. Parking is free at the weekends I think. Nice to take a walk across the aquaduct taking in the view along the valley. It is a bit tight with people walking both ways but it's well worth it. Amazing that this was built so long ago and has stood the test of time.

Miles of pathway to walk alongside the canal making walking easy and enjoyable. From Llangollen wharf you can walk either way left towards the falls and recently restored Chain Bridge alongside the Chainbridge Hotel or right to Trevor junction and The Aquaduct . This walk is fantastic taking you through some wonderful countryside and sceanary. Walking over the Aquaduct is... More
