Travel and Tourism in the Dee Valley

The landscape of the Dee Valley has drawn visitors and inspired artists and writers for over 200 years. It continues to do so today. The Llangollen Canal, with its magnificent aqueducts at Pontcysyllte and Chirk, complements the natural beauty of the area and widens its appeal to visitors.
