well worth a visit

An excellent but very scary walk over the aqueduct. Much fun to be had watching the canal boats trying to maneuver out of the locks an over the bridge.

Past the chain-bridge hotel you come to the Horseshoe Falls which is a quiet and pleasant area but don't expect a massive water-fall, more of a horsehoe shaped bend in the river with waterfall.

If you want to get back to nature this is for you . Parking is horrendous but once you find a place walk up to the canal. Not for wheelchairs unfortunately. Spotted a sign on the walk it read 'No Fishing' and on the same sign Anglers beware of overhead cables!

Nice pleasant day out, winter or summer as long as you are dressed appropriately. Aquaduct has some great views, you can we the change in the seasons. If you walk from the canal shop over the aquaduct there is a small community center that sells tea, coffee and sandwiches etc at the weekend (not sure about midweek) its run by... More

Great free parking (although limited places) so a perfect stop off point to or from Llangollen itself. My husband isn't good with heights so despite giving it his best shot he could not do it. He had walked across the one in Chirk a few days earlier but said this one seemed a lot higher leaving me and my daughter... More

Lovely walk and amazing views of the surrounding countryside. There are lots of Canal boats offering trips and short rides. Nice picnic spot or the pub nearby looked well kept.

Excellent easy walk with lots to see, places to stop etc only slightly marred by some dog walkers either not picking up or leaving full bags lying around - come on people, giving dogs a bad name!

To finish off a fabulous weekend in Llangollen my partner and I were recommended to visit the aqueduct and so we came here for a walk. What incredible scenery!! 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.
