Had a great circular walk from Llangollen via Offa's Dyke path on way to Aqueduct and by canal path on the way back. Took in historic sites, good views of the valley and canal boats and bridges

A lovely easy walk from the LLangollen wharf to the start of the canal at Horseshoe falls. Full of interest - horse drawn boats to see (beware the poo on the towpath}, chain bridge and Chainbridge Hotel and the amazing Horseshoe Falls where the canal starts. Not to be missed.

This walk is perfect for anyone who struggles with climbs... following the canal for 4.5miles from Pontcysllte Aquaduct into Llangollen you will pass some beautiful contrside, the vistas are stunning - especially if you manage to catch some favourable weather to further enhance the views. My family walk this every year, my son was just 4 the first time he... More

Enjoyed this but can't really say it was anything particularly special. It was a winter afternoon though, maybe prettier in summer. My local canal in Bury is probably nicer. But if you want an easy peaceful walk then a canalside strill is pretty much always going to be a winner

Just spent 3 days in Llangollen and having left my walking map of the area back at home I ended up asking 4 different locals whether the aqueduct was accessible by walking along the river Dee or what would be a nice walk to get there. One said walk the path along the river, and let me assure you he... More

The are some lovely footpaths and quiet country lanes which allow you to take circular walks using the canal as an outward or return route. The Horseshoe Falls are worth a visit and the Chain bridge is also an interesting sight. Being in a valley, however, most circular walks include a climb at some point.

We walked across the viaduct and the views are amazing . The trip on a boat along the canal was not running, so instead in Llangollen we went on a canal boat pulled by a shire horse. This was a great trip, and the town itself is spectacular. If possible do all three and take your time as it is... More
