Llangollen tourist guide

No visit to the region would be complete without a trip to Llangollen, often referred to colloquially as the festival capital of Wales. The Royal Pavilion and grounds, as well as being host to the world-famous International Music Eisteddfod every July, sees The Food, Gardening and Motorcycle Shows held there, as well as a highly regarded monthly antiques and collectables fair.

Llangollen, said to be very much a gateway to Wales, could be said to be a truly amazing town, showcasing the best North Wales has to offer the sightseer and walker. Statistically, and much to many peoples' amazement, the town receives more sun than Cornwall and less rain than the Lake District.

Within easy reach of Wrexham, it offers visitors, much to see and do. There are many National Trust properties and structures in and around the town, not forgetting the Pontcysyllte aqueduct, the highest and longest aqueduct on the British canal system. The Horseshoe Pass and the Horseshoe Falls make a great day out, and the Llangollen Steam Railway, with a trip along the Dee Valley is a must for children of all ages.

Llangollen Motor and Motor Cycle Museum has a wonderful collection of all things mechanical, with cars and bikes dating from 1912 to1975 plus plenty of memorabilia connected with motoring. And if you'd care to do something completely different, a canal boat trip at Llangollen Wharf will make your visit even more memorable. You can make a 45 minute trip along the feeder of the Llangollen canal in a boat pulled by a heavy horse, taking in the majestic scenery offered by the Dee Valley. And don't forget Castell Dinas BrĂ¢n, which is the resting place of the Holy Grail - according to local folklore that is!
