About Us

For over 100 years, visitors have enjoyed trips from Llangollen Wharf

Boat4Llangollen 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 Heritage Site.

Mulled Wine Special trips operate on the motor boat over the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct at weekends in November and December.

We also have 2 purpose built 32' self steer day hire boats for groups of up to 10 people. 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 and iced on the premises. The selection varies from day to day as fresh cakes are baked daily.

A selection of herb and fruit teas are available in addition to hot chocolate and freshly ground coffee.

The Tea Room is open on Fridays,Saturdays Sundays and Mondays throughout the year and daily from 10th March 2018 to 5th November 2018.
