“great country walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

my husband had wanted to do this walk after watching julia bradbury do it on tv. it was a very enjoyable walk with our cocker spaniel who spent alot of time in the river dee! the aquaduct is an amazing piece of engineering and a breath taking sight from a distance just take care when walking across it with small children as the railings are far apart and the path is very narrow next to the canal but there are very good signs warning of this.

“Spectacular Engineering and Beautiful Countryside”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

This is just the most amazing walk or travelling on your boat. I have done this numerous times and never tire of the amazing engineering and stunning countryside. The Thomas Telford Pontcysyllte Aqueduct is breath taking and walking through the Chirk Tunnel at 421 metres and the smaller aqueduct is a great experience.If you walk all the way to Llangollen you can visit Horseshoe falls. Can not recommend this highly enough.

“relaxing canal walk”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Ideal place for a walk, picnic and to watch the canal boats. Walking over the aqua duct is breathtaking looking at the scenery. The foot path is clean and well looked after. Ideal for a family day out. You can hire a boat for the day and go on a canal boat ride trip. Public toilets are free of charge and clean with hot water and soap but they smell. The car park is also free. There is shop with souvenirs and ice creams. I would recommend a visit.
