Llangollen Wharf


Llangollen Wharf is one of the major attractions in the North Wales market town of Llangollen. From the Wharf you can embark on either a horse drawn boat trip along the feeder for the main canal, or a motorised aqueduct cruise which takes you across the famous Pontcysyllte Aqueduct built by Thomas Telford. Both these trips take in the magical sights and sounds of the beautiful Llangollen Canal. Longer horse drawn trips can be arranged for large groups. Lunches and cream teas can be pre-ordered for the aqueduct trips. The whole canal in this area is now a World Heritage Site. We also have a self steer day hire boat for groups of up to 10 people. Dydd Un and Lady Eleanor. They are easy to steer and we give full tuition when you collect the boat. No licence is required. Bouyancy aids can be provided if required. We can also provide takeaway food for you consume on the boat. This is an ideal way to take a leisurely cruise along the Llangollen Canal and across the unforgettable Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.


Llangollen Wharf offers its visitors the unique and truly sublime experience of leaving behind the hustle and bustle of our daily lives and taking a memorable Horse Drawn boat trip along the gently flowing canal, which is part of a World Heritage Site abundant with the beauty of the natural world. Choose from a 45 minute trip, or 2 glorious hours of escapism to the Horseshoe Falls at weekends and on selected weekdays in the season. The modern purpose-built boats are perfect come rain or shine as there are both inside and outside seats to choose from, and what could be more wonderful to enhance your experience than enjoying a delicious cream tea as you glide along. Scrumptious boxes of goodies are available including Afternoon Tea box and Welsh cream teas. Motorboat trips across the Thomas Telford Pontcysyllte aqueduct, and self drive narrow boats also available.
