Where do we start? There’s so much to recommend about our gem of a town. It’s guaranteed to capture your heart as soon as you spy that first glimpse of the beautiful River Dee. Whether you choose to take a leisurely walk along its banks, feed the ducks and geese, risk the stepping stones in the shallows, take in the view - maybe stopping off for a bite to eat and a glass of one of our Llangollen beers - or whether you choose to travel by canoe or even ride the white waters, there really is something for everyone.
There’s our extensive canal network too, with day-trippers, holidaymakers and permanent canal boaters all enjoying the wildlife, the views and the leisurely pace.
Nestled between the Berwyn mountains, the Clwydian Range and the Dee Valley and a designated Area of Outstanding Beauty, Llangollen manages to retain its authentic historic identity whilst accommodating a welcoming range of cafés, bars, hotels, restaurants, guest houses, B&Bs, cottages and campsites to suit every visitor. From small coffee shops to exclusive restaurants, from trendy vibrant bars to traditional old pubs, we value and welcome our many visitors. Stroll along the Victoria Promenade, take in the shops, get a coffee and people-watch, or simply watch the river twist and turn, trying its best at times to up-end its travellers.
Just by the river is our steam railway, enjoyed by so many since its inception as a commercial enterprise in 1865. Since 1972, having been closed in 1965, it has been run by volunteers, determined to ensure that the public can still enjoy the stunning journey on this branch line. Starting with just 60ft/80m of track, it has now been restored to full operational use with tourists able to travel from Llangollen to Corwen and back again.
We at Llangollen Brewery are rightly proud to bear the name ‘Llangollen’ and we take great pleasure in contributing to our community’s rich heritage.
