The trip 2 the aqueduct takes 2hrs & goes along the Llangollen Canal through beautiful scenery of the R. Dee Valley. You have the choice of going up by barge & down by bus or vice-versa. I went this way but the latter is preferable as there is a better view of the fabulous vista. The cost of the return trip is £ 13.50 per adult & £6.75 per child.Trips are available all year round. Choirs are on board 2 co-incide with the Int. Eisteddfodd. This festival is not to be confused with the Nat . Eisteddfodd which is for Welsh speakers only.
We had a very good guide (23/06/14) who gave us lots of info about the aqueduct & about the bridges under which we went.
Built between 1795-1805 @ cost then of £47,000
Boats not suitable for disabled people as stairs are 2 steep. No room at booking base in Llangollen - not Wrexham - 2 install such facilities. I intend going again but would like to walk back along the canal because you can't see anything from the bus.
