Boating Holidays on the Llangollen Canal

The outstanding beauty of the Llangollen Canal is best experienced onboard your own narrowboat. Starting on the English side of the canal, your hire boat will carry you through lush green countryside against a backdrop of purple Welsh hills rising in the distance. Continue your adventure across the River Ceiriog on the 70ft high Chirk Aqueduct, underground through the 459 yard long Chirk Tunnel and onto the spectacular and famous Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, 1000ft long and 120ft high, looking down on the valley of the River Dee.
