We came to the area on our boat and really don't want to leave. Everything you need is within walking distance from the canal. The canal itself is beautiful with views that are just stunning. You can walk up to Horseshoe Falls alongside the river or down to the aqueduct if you're feeling energetic!The path itself is wide and easy... More

The narrow boat was picked up in Llangollen and motored for about one and a quarter hours to an Aqueduct that is considered one of the wonders of Wales. The water is drawn from the fiver Dee some 4 miles back and so the canal is constantly filled. The trip is slow,and used to be done by horse drawn narrow... More

A wonderful place to visit with views to die for. Take in the views and make sure you view the Pontcysyllte aqueduct both from above and below.

Relaxing stroll along the towpath which has lots of information boards and artefacts positioned at intervals. Boats can be hired and there are horse drawn boat trips available. Cafe and shop alongside the canal. Peaceful and tranquil with birds and overhanging trees. Moorings for canal boats. Canal clean and no litter evident in water or along the tow path. A... More

We actually split the Canal Walk in two etappes; first from Horseshoe Waterfall towards Llangollen downtown and separately visited the famous aqueduct. Shortly after the start you should also visit the renovated Chainbridge with the wonderful 5-bridges view! One may easily pass this opportunity, as the bridge is hidden behind the hotel. Don't hesitate to enter the hotel's premises in... More

The walk from Llangollen to the viaduct along the canal is flat and hard underfoot. Shaded for a majority of the way, it can be tackled in any weather. 11 miles round trip.

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
