Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Visitor Centre provides an awe inspiring day out that everyone in the family will enjoy, with amazing views and a 200 year old magnificent feat of engineering to discover.
The aqueduct crosses the river Dee and forms part of the Llangollen Canal. It is now a Grade I listed structure and has been placed on the World Heritage List. This very impressive channel is probably the best way to enjoy the stunning views of the expansive valley below.Be warned, the journey is not for the faint hearted as one side is free of railings and the aqueduct is 125ft (38.1m) high!
You have the option of crossing on foot, or by narrow boat, both of which will make you feel as if you are flying over the vale. For those who are nervous of the unguarded drop, you can walk alongside a narrow boat, which will provide a shield from the open side. There is a stout railing on the other side of the towpath too.
