A beautiful place to be and we were glad we came. Just one thing if you are afraid of heights this may not be the walk for you - otherwise I'd... More

The walk along the canal from Trevor towards Llangollen is unnerving. High above the valley with wide spacing on the railings the walk is exciting in strong winds.

we parked our car just before the bridge and walked across the canal where we had a drink and walked back. We drove into Llangollen, parked and walked from town to the weir, roughly an hour's walk, very enjoyable and an easy stroll. You can also go by horse drawn canal boat along this stretch.

Did this walk on a cold breezy but dry day in January and the views were stunning. Not for the fainthearted tho as it's a very narrow walkway.

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!

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
