Welsh Canal Holiday Craft have been operating boat trips across Pontcysyllte Aqueduct for over 130 years.
Today these trips are operated on a modern purpose built motor narrowboat with full central heating. The boat has toilet facilities and there is a licenced bar on board.
During November and December the boat is decorated for Christmas and the Group Rate includes a glass of mulled wine and a homemade mince pie.
The trip passes through a World Heritage site and there is a full commentary describing the scenery and the history of the canal and Vale of Llangollen. The 2 hour trips usually operate at 12.15pm and 2.30pm but can be varied to suit the itinerary of coach operators and tour organisers. In addition to the mulled wine and mince pie light meals and Welsh Cream Teas can be served during the cruise. Tea coffee and soft drinks are also available.
Coaches can drop off at the Wharf and coach parking in the centre of Llangollen is free of charge. There are a range of shop in Llangollen making it an excellent destination for a half day visit for a boat trip and Christmas shopping.
Further information of the trips can be found on www.aqueductrips and bookings are taken on 01978 860702.
