A beautiful 2 hour walk to the aqueduct

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.

We love to walk this canal path. The sun was shining which made it even better. You can watch the canal boats go by and also the lovely Shire Horses pulling the day boats. It runs along the canal right up to the Horseshoe Falls where you can have a picnic amongst the beautiful scenery.

Horseshoe Falls is a large weir in the River Dee which allows water to enter the Llangollen Canal, a small car park with toilet block overlooks the area. Llantysilio Church is also very close to the car park. A great and very pretty stop off point if travelling through the area.

Walked along the canal from Lion Quays to the Pontcysyllte Aquaduct. This was around 12 miles return but very flat. The walks through the tunnels at Chirk and over the Chirk and Pontycysyllte Aquaducts were amazing. There are some fantastic views both approaching and crossing the Aquaducts. A coffee shop by the Aquaduct gives you time to recharge for the... More

An amazing feat of Thomas Telfords engineering prowess. Good to walk along the aqueduct as narrow boats are being navigated across the aqueduct. It wasn't as scary as I thought it would be as there is a sturdy handrail. The views are stunning.

Just returned from a day visit to the LLangollen canal, we had a great time, a very nice walk from the centre following the river on one side and the canal on the other, nice park for the kids to play. You can get a canal boat trip or the stream train, lots of cafes and hotels, and only 1... More
