Take a boat trip across the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct this May Half Term
Over the May half term holidays, Anglo Welsh’s ‘Little Star’ trip boat will be operating five trips a day, offering families the chance to enjoy skippered cruises across the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.
At 300 metres long and 39 metres high, the awesome Pontcysyllte Aqueduct is the longest and highest aqueduct in Britain.
Described by Sir Walter Scott as a ‘stream in the sky’ where fish swim above birds, in 2009 it was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. This puts it on a par with the pyramids in Egypt and the Taj Mahal in India.
Our ‘Little Star’ daily boat trips offer the chance to cruise across this incredible structure, experience amazing views across the Dee Valley and make some fantastic family memories over the May half term.
Our knowledgeable team provides commentary on board about the 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.
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.
Little Star’ (‘Seren Fach’ in Welsh) 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.
Refreshments are available to purchase on board, including hot and cold drinks, and ice creams.
