Llangollen Wharf – Horse-drawn Boats

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.
