Llangollen - Landscape of Legends

Steeped in myths and legends, the ancient Welsh town of Llangollen is our base for this popular tour. Highlights include a horse-drawn canal boat journey along the beautiful, clear waters of the Llangollen Canal to the aptly named Horseshoe Falls, a trip on the Llangollen heritage railway and a visit to mighty Chirk Castle.
SUGGESTED ITINERARY
Day 1 Arrival
We arrive at our hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2 Llangollen & Horse Drawn Canal Trip
After breakfast this morning, we enjoy time at leisure in Llangollen before we experience a 2 hour relaxing horse drawn canal boat trip, admiring the Chain Bridge across the River Dee and marvelling at the manmade Horseshoe Falls, a striking feature on the river, whilst gliding along a beautiful length of canal.

Day 3 Llangollen Railway & Chester
This morning, we head for Llangollen Railway, which is primarily a steam hauled heritage railway. Our return journey begins beside the Dee River Bridge in the town centre and continues for 10 miles upstream to Corwen, from where we enjoy spectacular views over the River Dee and the Berwyn mountain range. We have some time in Corwen before we journey back to Llangollen, once again enjoying the breathtaking views as we pass through some of the finest natural beauty North Wales has to offer. In the afternoon, we spend time at leisure in the historic city of Chester.

Day 4 Chirk Castle & Gardens (NT)
After breakfast, we travel to the mighty medieval fortress of Chirk Castle which reveals 400 years of changing tastes and fashions in its lavishly furnished rooms. We can enjoy lunch in the historic kitchen before strolling through the stunning gardens - stand on the terrace and admire the 18th century ha-ha at the bottom of the garden, which affords stunning views over the Cheshire and Salop Plains.

Day 5 Departure
After breakfast, we make our way home.
