Make sure you book! We booked a week before for the 2 hr trip and glad we did as it was full when we got there. Nice and peaceful and you get off at horseshoe falls for a break. The falls are as named "horseshoe ", very pretty.

Done this walk several times with friends, access great, the passing boat people always wave hello and we enjoy some banter with them. Several benches along the route where you can enjoy a picnic if you wish, or feed the ducks....great walk

We walked from Llangollen to Horseshoe Falls along the canal. Kids loved seeing horses towing the boats, spotting the fish in the water, playing pooh sticks. Just before the Chain Bridge Hotel there are some old metal stairs on your left leading down to the rapids - fantastic place just to sit and look at fast flowing river. When we... More

We had already been down the tow path, but on a horse drawn barge which was fab, we then had a walk along the tow path and stumbled across the famous Llangollen 'fairy festival' which was full of craft/clothes/eatery stalls and live music.. Nice little find for a stroll up the tow path! Lovely afternoon.

Walked from Llangollen to Horseshoe falls which is a very pretty walk and destination. We also visited Chain Bridge Hotel for a lovely cup of tea and views of Steam Railway Station at Berwyn.

Walk from Llangollen to Chirk and was a great walk with great views, the towpath was very well kept and was very pleasant to walk it would be suitable for push chairs which is nice to see. Well worth walking along if your in the area.

Two mile walk from Llangollen to the horseshoe falls (the opposite way to the aqueduct walk). Passing the chain bridge hotel,you can walk across the chain bridge in the hotel grounds then come back and admire the horseshoe falls before your walk back. All level ground no inclines,lovely easy walk

The bridge over the river Dee.This attraction must be at the top of your 50 things to do. Marvel at the engineering done over ONE HUNDRED years ago. Not for the feint hearted if you want to traverse the aqueduct (I cannot pronounce the welsh name).Carry on and walk into Llangollen, where you can get refreshments to suit all.You can... More

We parked at horseshoe falls and had a lovely walk along the canal. We stopped at the Chainbridge Hotel for a drink, the weather was lovely so we sat outside looking out to the canal Steam train and swingbridge. We had a lovely walk along the canal passing horses pulling canal boats. Llangollen itself is a lovely place with plenty... More
