Horse Drawn Boat Trips

Visitors have been enjoying leisurely trips from Llangollen Wharf for over 100 years. We continue this tradition by offering wonderful horse drawn boat trips along the canal, which is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to a rich variety of local flora and fauna. 


We offer 45 minute Horse Drawn Boats trips on a daily basis from  mid March to the end of October. We also offer  2 hour Horse Drawn Boat Trips  to the Horseshoe Falls at weekends and on selected weekdays. These trips can be booked online at www.horsedrawnboats.co.uk

Horse Drawn Boat Trip – 45 Minutes 

The 45 minute Horse Boat trips are now running Daily


A return boat trip from Llangollen Wharf, running every 30 minutes during the school holidays and roughly every hour at other times. This is the perfect activity whatever the weather, as our modern purpose-built boats have both inside and outside seating areas.


The trip is just long enough to allow you to relax and unwind, making it perfect as a gentle start or soothing end to your day, or as a moment of peace in the middle of a hectic one. Experience for yourself the pace of life in "the olden days" whilst gazing out at one of the most beautiful canals in Britain, and admire the strength of our gorgeous horses as they easily pull your boat through the water.


There’s no need to book, just turn up and pay cash on the boat or card in booking office. If you’re travelling a fair distance to see us, we recommend that you ring beforehand to confirm operating times.454T
