Crossing the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct

The aqueduct and 11 miles of canal that come with it was made a world heritage site in 2009, and offers a chance to experience a truly spectacular journey. Crossing the Grade 1 Listed aqueduct in a narrowboat will give you a feeling of being suspended in mid-air as you journey along the 1000 ft long structure. Almost touching the sky, at 125 feet in the air, and with no barrier between you and the valley below it is a truly unique experience with jaw-dropping views. Although anyone is welcome to cross the aqueduct it is recommended that the elderly and children stay inside the boat whilst crossing.
