About Llangollen Wharf

Llangollen Wharf is one of the longest-established visitor attractions in the North Wales market town of Llangollen, with visitors enjoying trips for over 100 years. 

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 that takes you across the famous Pontcysyllte Aqueduct built by Thomas Telford. Both of these boat trips take in the magical sights and sounds of this beautiful World Heritage Site. Group rates apply on all trips for larger groups, whilst lunches and cream teas can be pre-ordered for the aqueduct trips. Mulled Wine Special trips operate on the motor boat over the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct at weekends in November and December.  Note: We are unable to operate the motor boat at the moment due to Civid restrictions. We hope to be able to operate trips over  Pontcysyllte Aqueduct over the Christmas holidays.


We also have two 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. Perfect for families, groups of friends and corporate teams alike, a private boat for the day is a totally unique experience.
