Shropshire canal boat holidays

12-09-2013 : OPEN WEEKEND IN ELLESMERE

Canal Boat Holiday guests cruising the Llangollen Canal in Shropshire this weekend can take advantage of an open day at a historic waterway yard in Ellesmere.

As part of the Ellesmere festival the Canal and River Trust will be opening the doors of the newly refurbished forge.

Visitors will be able to see inside the buildings and take a guided tour.

Canal Boat trips will be running between Ellesmere Wharf and the Waterways Yard.

There will be fun children's activities and an opportunity to see a Blacksmith at work.

The waterway yard in Ellesmere in right along side our Canal Boat Holiday base at Blackwater Meadow so you can easily take advantage of this unique opportunity.

From Blackwater you can cruise the beautiful Llangollen Canal which is famous for its beautiful scenery which ranges from mighty Welsh mountains to gentle rolling hills.

As the Llangollen Canal meanders through some spectacular scenery you will discover some of the most amazing feats of engineering to be found on the canal system.

Marvel at the Chirk Aqueduct and its neighbour the the world famous Pontcysyllte Aqueduct.

In June 2009 The Pontcysyllte Aqueduct became a World Heritage site and puts it on a par with Great Barrier Reef and Statue of Liberty.

The town of Llangollen is famous the world over for the annual International Musical Eisteddfod when, each July 4,000 competitors from more than fifty countries come together in a gala of song, music and dance.

Moor up on your Canal Boat Holiday and take a trip on The Llangollen railway which hosts many events throughout the year from a real ale train trip to a visit from Santa you can even meet Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends .
