For over 100 years, visitors have enjoyed trips from Llangollen
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 built by Thomas Telford. Both these boat
trips take in the magical sights and sounds of the beautiful
Llangollen Canal. Longer horse drawn trips can be arranged for
large groups. Lunches and cream teas can be pre-ordered for the
aqueduct trips. The whole canal in this area is now a World
We also have a self steer day hire boat for groups of up to
10 people, on our purpose built 32' narrow boat the "Dydd Un". This
is an ideal way to take a leisurely cruise along the Llangollen
Canal and across the unforgettable Pontcysyllte Aqueduct. This is a
perfect way for a family, group of friends or a corporate team to
have their own private boat for the day.
The Tea Room and Gift shop at Llangollen Wharf is located in the
old canal warehouse. All our food is prepared and cooked on
the premises so that you know it will always be fresh.
We serve breakfast and a variety of light
lunches throughout the day. Welsh Cream Teas are always available
with our own home made scones and bara brith complemented by jam
and clotted cream. Our speciality is our home made cakes all baked

fresh cakes are baked daily.
