Sightseeing

Gorgeous Llangollen is very pretty with the bridge over the town falls of the River Dee providing entertainment if you prefer to watch the rafters, kayakers and fun seekers bouncing their way down the rapids. There are several companies that will facilitate this if you’re feeling adventurous too! As well as going on a steam train, up the valley, you can also enjoy a cream tea on board, or alongside, the horse drawn canal boats, or venture across the Froncysyllte viaduct, hundreds of feet about the valley floor! Castell Dinas Bran is worth every second of the 10min climb for a breathtaking valley view and great photo opportunities! Dinner alongside the river at The Cornmill is always a pleasure - make sure you book though! There are plenty of quirky shops and eateries though - Gayles wine bar, the Three Pigeons and cafes galore. It gets very busy in the summer so get there early as parking can be a challenge!

Stunning Chester has so much to offer, where to start? Race days by the river? Walking the walls with a Roman gladiator? Strolling along the 2 tier black and white rows of quirky shops? Or perhaps popping into the cathedral to listen to a lunchtime concert? Or my favourite … listening to undiscovered talent busking under the clock tower, with a glass of Prosecco, friends and bags of shopping/pressies under the table! Chester has all the big shops cloaked in oodles of character …
