Llangollen Wharf is one of the major attractions in the North Wales market town of Llangollen and is now part of a World Heritage Site!

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. Both these trips take in the magical sights and sounds of the beautiful Llangollen Canal and all boats have inside and outside seating areas, making them an all-weather bonus.

There's also a 2 hour version which take you past the Horseshoe Falls all the way to the Chain Bridge on the River Dee! This trip departs every Saturday and Sunday throughout the season and Tuesdays in the school holidays.

For the experienced they also offer self-drive boat hire on a 32 foot narrowboat with all mod cons including fully equipped kitchen and a flushing loo. If 'glamping' is glamorous camping, then I suppose this must be 'gloating'!
