Our Pontcysyllte Aqueduct daily boat trips are back

Boat trips across the Pontcysyllte Aqeduct in North Wales

From Easter Friday 29 March until 31 October 2024, our Little Star trip boat will again offer daily skippered narrowboat trips across the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct in North Wales.

Learn about the history of the site

Little Star takes passengers along the Llangollen Canal and across the UNESCO World Heritage Pontcysyllte Aqueduct to experience amazing views across the Dee Valley. Our knowledgeable team provides commentary on board about the fascinating history of the site.

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

Group travel bookings

As well as daily 45-minute return trips, we offer bespoke cruises for groups of 20 or more. For example, we can host a two-hour return journey along the Llangollen Canal to Bryn Howel and back. This longer cruise gives visitors the chance to experience more of the 11-mile UNESCO World Heritage site.

Ticket prices

‘Little Star’/’Seren Fach’ offers space for up to 48 passengers. 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.  Adult tickets for groups of 10 or more start at £9 each.

From 29 March to 31 October, trips depart daily at 11am, 12 noon, 1.30pm, 2.30pm and 3.30pm from Canal Wharf, Trevor, Llangollen LL20 7TT.


Parking is available a short walk away at the Acrefair ‘pay & display’ car park, Wrexham LL14 3SG. We advise using this postcard for your SatNav or Google maps, rather than ‘Pontcysyllte Aqueduct’.
