Crest Narrowboats are a family run canal narrowboat hire business with some members having over 50 years experience in narrowboat holiday hire fleet management. We are ideally situated between the Chirk and Pontcysyllte Aqueducts for narrowboat holidays on the English and Welsh Canals.
With Black Prince you can choose a canal boat holiday to suit you with flexible durations from the marina at Chirk.
No previous canal boating experience is necessary and full instruction will be given before you go and explore the World Heritage Site.
Canal boat trips for disabled and disadvantaged people. The Vale of Llangollen Canal Boat Trust was formed in 1983 to raise money to build a narrowboat for disabled and disadvantaged people of all ages.
Anglo Welsh is one of the largest canal boat holiday companies in the UK. With over 40 years experience, they have a reputation for providing high quality, exceptional value holidays.
There are day boats for hire, so you can go meandering through the World Heritage Site experiencing sailing over the two magnificent Aqueducts at Pontcysyllte and Chirk, and navigate two tunnels and a swing bridge all in a day.
Llangollen Wharf is one of the longest established visitor 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 boat trip which takes you across the famous Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. Both these boat trips take in the magical sights and sounds of the beautiful Pontcysyllte Aqueduct and Canal World Heritage Site.
