Canal Wharf, Trevor, Llangollen, LL20 7TT
All Anglo Welsh holidays are memorable, but this one might literally come highest on the list! And it represents the ‘Welsh’ part of our name…
Trevor’s awesome Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, nicknamed the ‘Stream in the Sky’ for obvious reasons, carries the Llangollen canal 126ft high above the River Dee. It is a Scheduled Ancient Monument; a Grade I Listed structure and was granted World Heritage status in June 2009, putting it on an equal footing with the Great Barrier Reef and Statue of Liberty! It towers above the heart of this breathtaking 18km long site, stretching from Gledrid Bridge near Rhoswiel in Wales, to the Horseshoe Falls, on the River Dee.
Situated right on the doorstep of our picturesque base, you can choose the Llangollen cruise for the experience of a lifetime. In your boat, the effect is that of being suspended in mid-air. The views are spectacular, so don’t forget your camera!
With delightful Llangollen town only a two hour cruise away, don’t miss out on a visit to The Steam Railway Centre. Navigate the Llangollen to experience one of the UK’s most stunning stretches of inland waterway. There are tunnels, lift bridges and not too many locks as you roll through the rolling plains, rich in wildlife. The Dee Valley with its little towns of Chirk and Corwen and Lake Bala, is a gateway of discovery to the hidden secrets of this fascinating area of North Wales.
