Celebrate Father’s Day with a boat trip across the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct

Our ‘Little Star’ trip boat will be operating five skippered boat trips on Father’s Day (18 June), offering the chance to enjoy an unforgettable family day out together at the UNESCO World Heritage Pontcysyllte Aqueduct site.

Also known as ‘The Stream in the Sky’, the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct carries the Llangollen Canal high above the Dee Valley.

At 300 metres long and 39 metres high, it’s the longest and highest aqueduct in Britain.

Opening in 1805, its name, which is pronounced ‘Pont-ker-sulth-tay’, is the Welsh for ‘the bridge that connects’.

Our 45-minute-long return boat trips offer the chance to cruise across this incredible structure, experiencing amazing views across the Dee Valley, and making some fantastic Father’s day memories to treasure.

Our knowledgeable team provides commentary on board about the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and the Llangollen Canal. It’s a great way to learn more about the fascinating history of the site as you cruise gently along.

Refreshments are available to purchase on board, including hot and cold drinks, and ice creams.

From 1 April to 30 September 2023, trips depart daily at 11am, 12 noon, 1.30pm, 2.30pm and 3.30pm from Canal Wharf, Trevor, Llangollen LL20 7TT.

Adult tickets are priced at £10 each, children (aged under 16) are priced at £6.

Family tickets for two adults and two children are priced at £25 each.
