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

The Telford viaduct is a canal walk with a difference. We experienced this wonderful feat of engineering soaring across the valley last Sunday and were amazed by the spectacular if somewhat vertigo inducing views. The narrow path was busy with boaters, walkers, cyclists, dog walkers and families all enjoying the unexpected but glorious sunshine. The car parking is free as... More

The footpath at the side of the canal is really well maintained making walking so easy and comfortable, it's even fine for pushchairs and wheelchairs. The scenery is lovely and the passing by of the horse drawn barges is lovely to see. If you're happy to walk the length of it you pass a nice pub, the Chain Bridge Hotel,... More

Just beyond Llangollen towards the Horseshoe Pass on the A542 turn left onto the B5103 sign posted for Chainbridge Hotel and horseshoe falls. Continue past the hotel to a small car park on the left side of the road. Park here and walk over the brow of the hill for stunning views of the falls in the valley below and... More
