Boat Trip across Pontcysyllte Aqueduct Including Afternoon tea – 19th May 2020 – £39.95 Per Person
Built between 1795 and 1805, the impressive structure stands out from its surroundings and yet somehow complements the landscape perfectly, making it a site that simply has to be seen up close. This is the country’s highest navigable aqueduct, towering 126ft (38m) above the River Dee and supported by 18 stone piers. The canal runs through an iron trough 1007 feet (306.9 metres) long, 11 feet 10 inches (3.6 metres) wide and 5 feet 3 inches (1.6 metres) deep. Clear water is fed from the River Dee at the Horseshoe Falls near Llangollen.
Fully weatherproofed and fitted with comfortable seats and central heating, our canal boat is specially designed for sitting back and taking in outstanding views. Meanwhile, live commentary will help you to understand more about the area’s rich heritage and thriving wildlife, whilst our inviting bar ensures that you have everything you need to refresh and unwind.
Traversing five miles of the Llangollen Canal World Heritage Site, this is an unmissable activity that we highly recommend you include when visiting our charming region.
