Attractions near Pont-Cysyllte Aqueduct
Chirk Castle (2 Miles)*
Few places welcome visitors with a "bloody" hand, but the Myddelton family coat-of-arms above the elaborate gates does indeed incorporate just such a symbol.
Llangollen Railway (3 Miles)*
Part of the Ruabon to Barmouth line, the Railway closed to passenger traffic in 1965, and to goods in 1968. The track and signalling were removed the following month, and for seven years the buildings and trackbed were left at the mercy of nature.
Llangollen Motor Museum (4 Miles)*
See the cars that Grandad used to drive. More than thirty vehicles are on display, ranging from the 1920s to the 1970s - so there's sure to be something you remember from your own childhood - whenever that was.
Valle Crucis Abbey (4 Miles)*
The evocative ruins of Valle Crucis lie in green fields beneath Llangollen's steep-sided mountains. In medieval times, this was a remote spot (ideal for the austere Cistercian monks, who deliberately sought out wild and lonely places).
Erddig Hall, Gardens & Country Park (4 Miles)*
Erddig is a very special place. It is a unique family home that has captured the way of life of a bustling household community during the early years of this century.
Bangor-on-Dee Racecourse (7 Miles)*
There's a warm welcome at Bangor-on-Dee Races throughout the year. Set in glorious countryside beside the River Dee this perfect country course provides exciting racing with top trainers and jockeys at every meeting.
Rug Chapel and Llangar Church (12 Miles)*
These delightful religious sites are located close together in beautiful countryside just west of Corwen. Rug is a rare example of a little-altered private 17th century chapel. Llangar Church is even older than Rug.
