Horse Drawn Boat trips have been operating from Llangollen Wharf since 1884 and it is now one of the major attractions in the North Wales market town of Llangollen.
For over 100 years visitors have been experiencing the pleasure of boat trips on the Llangollen Canal which is a unique experience in Wales. Watch the fish swim lazily by in the clear water delivered fresh from the River Dee as your boat glides gently through the Welsh mountains. Welsh Canal Holiday Craft’s all weather wheel chair friendly boats will enhance the experience.
The boats are modern purpose built with under cover and open seating. There is a 45 minutes duration horse drawn return trip from Llangollen Wharf which can be operated at any time to suit Group organisers between 10.00am and 3.00pm trips. The trip is just long enough to allow your passengers to relax and unwind and enjoy a traditional mode of transport.
They can experience themselves the pace of life in the ‘olden days’, enjoy some of the most beautiful canal in Britain and admire the strength of the company’s gorgeous heavy horses as they easily pull the boat through the water. There is also a 2 hour trip to the Horseshoe Falls which again can be operated at any time to suit the organiser between 10.00am and 2.00pm. There is a 20 minute break at the Chain Bridge Hotel to allow the passengers to see the Horseshoe Falls and Chain Bridge
