North Wales Canal routes

North wales is a great destination for a canal holiday and offers canal routes with fantastic scenery. North Wales is well known for outdoor activities like mountain biking, walking and climbing. Start your narrowboat holiday and travel from Cheshire or bases in Wrexam if you wish to be closer to North Wales.

Llangollen Canal

Renowned as the most beautiful canal of the system, the canal passes through quaint villages and by churches dating back 700 years. Wrenbury Lift Bridge attracts many visitors and Ellesmere is a popular mooring place for its inns and church with a Norman nave. On the Welsh borders the canal passes through the beautiful Ceiroq Valley, over Chirk Aqueduct and through Chirk Tunnel. A stop in Chirk with it's interesting castle is worthwhile. Soon the absolute must for all travelers comes into view; the breathtaking Pontcysyllte Aqueduct sails 121ft (40m) above the River Dee and if you're brave enough to peek, you're looking straight down!. A day shopping in the tourist town of Llangollen where the International Eisteddfod is held each summer is something to look forward to before the return trip on this magnificent waterway
